The sweeping northern curve of the island is actually the southern rim of the crater, which forms a sheltered bay that benefits from the nutrients left from the last volcanic activity, which was about 60 years ago.This bay holds a variety of dive sites, from Star Wars (plenty of small fish, great corals and sometimes mantas), to GPS Point (your chance to see sharks, tuna and barracuda), K2 (good for corals, barramundi, scorpionfish and eels) and Small World (a popular night-dive spot).The Komodo National Park has become a really popular area for diving but secluded Gili Banta, off the northwest coast of Komodo island, remains uncrowded.
5. Wayag On a map the islands of Wayag are so tiny, they look like insignificant drops in the ocean... but don’t let their size fool you: in real life these islands form what is perhaps the most spectacular scenery in all of Raja Ampat.A hike to one of the islands’ peaks will reveal a breathtaking (literally!) panorama of picturesque karst spires that loom from clear turquoise waters and colorful coral reefs. There are lagoons and coves, inlets, channels, sublime beaches, forested islands and shards of rocks... beyond doubt, it’s a landscape you’ll remember forever.
