    Details

    Saukabu Homestay offers three private bungalows, and a two-room family bungalow. (If you want to book the entire family bungalow, then please select 2 x Room in a bungalow on the booking form.)

    The bungalows are set just back from the beautiful beaches of Pulau Pam’s northern shore.

    Bungalow rooms sleep two on raised beds. Sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets supplied. Both bungalows have covered verandahs with ocean views and a table and chairs and bedrooms are fitted with light switches and power outlets.

    Meals are served in a beachside dining room where drinking water, tea and coffee are always freely available to guests.

    Guests share a two-roomed, concrete-floored bathroom building. One room houses a squat toilet, and dip mandi (bucket) bathing. The other room has a a western style toilet and bucket bathing.

    Electricity is provided by generator and is available from sunset until around midnight. Saukabu Homestay receives a good phone signal that supports a data connection.

    Saukabu Homestay is a short walk away from Saukabu village. Basic supplies of the kind used by local people can be purchased from small home kiosks in Saukabu, but it’s wise to bring anything you regard as essential with you.

    English is spoken at Saukabu Homestay.

    Saukabu (like everywhere else in Raja Ampat) has no way to safely dispose of or recycle inorganic waste, so please do take any you create away with you to eliminate the chance of it eventually winding up in the ocean.

    Coconut crabs: This protected species is unfortunately hunted and sold at some places in Raja Ampat. Please don’t buy any. Saukabu Homestay will refuse to cook them for you and will insist you release them instead.

    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.

    Activities

    Fantastic ocean vistas and a superb, wide, white sandy beach are the attractions at Saukabu Homestay.

    There’s great snorkelling over coral out front of the homestay and low tide provides the opportunity for long beach walks.

    Saukabu Homestay can arrange tours to all the famous snorkelling sites and attractions around Pam and Piaynemo. (Pam and Piaynemo are the proper local names of the islands often marked on maps as Fam and Penemu.)

    Spectacular karst island panoramas like those of Wayag are available at Piaynemo. Combine a Piaynemo visit with a snorkelling stop at nearby Rufas Island or at the famed reefs of Melissa’s Garden. Myriad low sand cays to the south of Pam feature deserted beaches, sapphire seas and great snorkelling.

    Village explorations are available from the homestay, which lies a five minute walk to the east of Saukabu. There is a path that connects Saukabu to Pam’s other villages and a sheltered bay on the the north side of the island. It’s about an 11km round trip, and there is no chance of getting lost if you stay on the path. There are lakes in the interior of the island, but it would be best to go with a guide if you want to explore those. Ask about Pam’s virgin coconut oil industry: Oils and pure coconut soaps can be purchased from the local cooperative and you are welcome to observe and/or participate on production days.
