Details

Yenmakrak Homestay lies just east of Yenbekwan village on Pulau Mansuar’s north shore.

Four over-water, private bungalows are available. They have glazed windows and glass doors which can be locked. The bungalows have verandahs with hammocks and great ocean views to Gam and Waigeo. One bungalow has a real bed, the others have a thick mattress on the floor and bedding in both includes sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets. Rooms are set up for two, but extra bedding can be provided if required. Room light switches and power outlets are supplied.

Meals at Yenmakrak Homestay are served in an over-water dining room, where drinking water, tea and coffee making supplies are always freely available for guests.

Guests share a tile-floored bathroom building on land. The bathroom has a western style toilet and bucket bathing.

Electricity is supplied from a generator which runs from sunset to around midnight, and Yenmakrak Homestay receives a good phone signal which supports a data connection.

Basic supplies are available in Yenbekwan, which is about a five minute boat ride away.

Raja Ampat suffers from a total lack of safe waste disposal and recycling services. All homestays request that their guests please take their inorganic waste away with them when they leave, so as to not contribute to the growing trash problem in the islands.

English is spoken at Yenmakrak Homestay.

Transport between Yenmakrak Homestay and Waisai costs IDR 700,000 each way. The cost is shared among boat passengers. For groups larger than 4 people, the cost is IDR 150,000 per person.

Snorkelling & Hiking

Be sure to bring snorkelling gear, because in addition to the trips above, Yenmakrak Homestay has excellent snorkelling available at the door.

In the jungle above Yenmakrak you’ll find a path that joins the villages of Yenbuba and Yenbekwan. Yenbekwan is less than a kilometre to the west. Heading east, it’s about 2km to Yenbuba, where you’ll find fabulous snorkelling beneath the village jetty. At low tide it’s possible to cross the sandbanks from Yenbuba to Kri and snorkel the reffs there too.

About 4 km west of Yenbekwan, and a couple of hundred metres inland from the coast is a hidden lake. From the lake, it’s about 500m across the island to the village of Sauwandarek. Sauwandarek has a fabulous beach and good snorkelling from the village jetty.
