The Raja Ampat translates as 'four kings' and comprises four island groups around the Bird's Head Peninsula of West Papua, in Indonesia:
Waigeo in the north, Batanta, Salawati and Misool in the south.
Pulau Pef is located 109km (68mi) north-east from Sorong and 48km (30mi) south of the equator, in the central Raja Ampat, almost touching Gam island to the east, north of the Dampier Strait and east of Fam islands, with Wayag to the north west.
Spectacular bays, hidden lakes, climbable rocky outcrops, limestone 'mushroom' islands with unexplored caves, lagoons and beaches are just a few things you will find on this remote, uninhabited island. Exotic birds and extreme nature, pristine blue mangroves and virgin jungle are waiting for you to be explored. You can even find ancient rock art on karst cliffs. The beauty above water is even toped by the unmatched underwater diversity. The diving resort Raja4Divers on Pulau Pef is surrounded by the world's best dive sites.
With its unique landscape and the enormous richness of nature we call Pulau Pef a Mini Raja Ampat.
