Indonesia: Bangka [Sulawesi] + Rao [Halmahera] + Raja Ampat [Papua] – July 2019
A one-month diving trip in three stages, in the eastern part of the Indonesian archipelago. First stop, the quiet little Bangka Island in North Sulawesi. Second exploration, far from the beaten tourist trails: Rao Island, opposite Morotai, in the north of Halmahera (Northern Moluccas). And finally a new visit to Kri Island, in the beautiful Raja Ampat Archipelago, West Papua.
I'm very late in my publications, and I haven't posted yet any articles on this trip (except the general article on Raja Ampat below, which compiles information from several previous trips). In the meantime, to get a glimpse of this new Indonesian trip in July 2019, you can review below the Instagram stories that I've published on the way:
Diving at Raja Ampat... A dream. But beware, a trip to Raja Ampat requires that you behave as a responsible visitor. Tourism, which is booming in this archipelago, is threatening one of the most magnificent reservoirs of biodiversity on the planet.
