Electricity is supplied by generator, and is available from sunset to around midnight.
A variable phone signal is usually available at Mioskor Homestay. (Half bars and an H connection the day we visited.)
Only a little English is spoken at Mioskor Homestay, so a phrasebook or a translation app will prove handy if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia.
Pam village is a ten minute boat ride away, and basic supplies can be purchased in shops there.
Please be aware that, as everywhere in Raja Ampat, there is no way to properly dispose of inorganic waste at Mioskor. To avoid contributing to the trashing of paradise, all homestays ask that you take all your inorganic trash away with you when you leave.

Public Boat to the Fam Islands
If you have plenty of time, you don’t mind a bit of discomfort, and you want spend as little as possible on transport costs, then there are cargo boats that you can use to get to the Fam Islands. (Obviously, if you are going to arrive on the cargo boat, then you don’t need to request a Waisai pickup when submitting the booking form above.)
Here’s what you need to know about getting the cargo boat to Fam.
Snorkelling and sightseeing
Beautiful white sand beaches and a rich fringing reef afford great snorkelling opportunities, and Mioskor Homestay can of course organise snorkelling and sightseeing trips to Piaynemo and any other of the Pam Islands you care to visit.
Pam Island is only a ten minute boat ride away and is a great place to spend the day. Two villages, long beaches and walking trails provide plenty of opportunities to explore.
Nearby Pambemuk Island is tiny, but it hosts Pam’s largest village and port. It’s also a great place to spend a day.
When you’re done, relax and soak up the sunset from your bungalow verandah while the breeze whispers through Mios Kor’s native casuarinas.
