Transport / Getting there
There’s a lot to do at Corepen Homestay. Located in a private cove on one of Raja Ampat’s best beaches, Corepen has great snorkelling at the door. Entry to the water is easy due to the sand bottom, which transitions to rich coral gardens with bountiful sea life.
At low tide long beachwalks are possible and a Corepen also offers a guided 30 minute walk into the jungle behind the homestay to see the dawn displays of Red Birds of Paradise. The walks begin before dawn (bring a flashlight!) and cost IDR 100,000 per person. The many bird species that can be observed at Corepen include cockatoos, parrots and ground dwelling mound builders known locally as maleo.
