Raja Ampat location map
High resolution Raja Ampat Map
A highly detailed map compiled by Yayasan Basudara, this map has it all. Homestays, villages, ferry routes, points of interest, kayaking routes. Be aware that the transport data was current in April 2017 and has probably changed. The Wings Air flights into Waisai definitely have. Fabulous work Fahmy – thank you!

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. To quickly find homestays with excellent snorkeling, select “Coral” and “Good house reef” in the advanced search on the accommodation 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.
