Raja Ampat Maps

If you’re looking to travel to Raja Ampat, here’s a bunch of maps that will hopefully be of use.

If you’re planning independent travel to Raja Ampat, you might also want to see our How to get to Raja Ampat page.

Raja Ampat location map

High resolution map of Raja Ampat

We compiled this map to give a clear overview of the islands and the major towns and villages mentioned on this site. The base data came from a nautical chart of unknown provenance that’s been widely reproduced elsewhere on the web. If you’re looking for an island that isn’t marked on this map, let us know in the comments below or by message on our Facebook page. We’ll add it and will let you know when it’s done. Or you can see if you can find it on this version of the original chart.

Map of Raja Ampat snorkeling and dive sites

Good snorkeling’s available almost everywhere in Raja Ampat, but here’s a selection of Raja Ampat dive sites selected because they have great stuff to see at snorkeling depths. Clicking on the starfish icons will show site name, location and GPS coordinates. For more information (and some video) visit our Snorkeling in Raja Ampat page.

If you’re a diver looking for a comprehensive map of Raja Ampat dive sites, we’d suggest getting hold of Burt Jones and Maurine Shimlock’s book “Diving Indonesia’s Bird’s Head Seascape” – it’s by far the best resource available. Here’s a link to their website.

  3. Any idea why Indonesia is not supported as of 10/2013 in Google Mapmaker?

    Seems like it would really help to put Raja Ampat on the map – literally – if we were able to add ports, ferries, villages, businesses and other points of interest for inclusion in Google Maps’ own database – not just on our custom maps.

      No idea Steve. There’s certainly a lot of demand for it in the forums. Guess it’s just not a high priority for them :(
