There is no safe way of disposing of this kind of trash in Raja Ampat without causing pollution and contributing to the growing rubbish problem in the islands.

Lalosi Homestay is situated on the edge of Arborek village, which has a jetty famous for its diving and snorkelling sights. Cultural performances are often staged in the village for guests of visiting liveaboard and cruise boats and local crafts are made for sale there.
Arborek is a pretty village and offers plenty of opportunity for social interaction. Arborek Island is quite small and can easily be fully explored in a couple of hours.
Diving and snorkelling
Diving is available at Lalosi Homestay in conjunction with Arborek Dive Shop. Arborek is the closest you can stay to the famed attractions of Manta Point and Manta Sandy and the island is also handy to Piaynemo (Penemu) and the Pam (Fam) Islands for those wanting to explore further afield.
The beach at Lalosi gives way to weedy shallows and then coral as you move away from the shore. Good snorkelling can be had at the door, but the village jetty is where the real action is.
