The Incredible Beaches of Raja Ampat

Beaches of Raja Ampat

Everyone loves a beautiful beach. Luckily for us, Indonesia boasts an amazing variety of incredible beaches. In Raja Ampat, one of our favourite cruising grounds, there is a seemingly endless supply of white sand. If beaches are your thing, then cruising Raja Ampat aboard the Samata Luxury Yacht is your dream holiday!

Raja Ampat is the jewel of Indonesia. With hundreds of karst islands spread over 70,000 square kilometers, this is the ultimate cruising destination. Karst is another word for limestone, a soft, white rock that produces beautiful white sand. Although many of the islands in the archipelago feature the classic mushroom shape of limestone islands, there are many beautiful beaches in the area.   The best beaches are located in the north and central areas of Raja with the southern Misool area also home to a variety of stunning locations.

Wayag Lagoon

One of the most famous destinations in Indonesia is the beautiful Wayag lagoon. Wayag is a small protected area with dozens of small islands surrounded by deep blue sea. Inside the lagoon there is a white sand beach around every corner. Some are ringed by beautiful coral gardens that are perfect for snorkelling. Others have soft, silky sand that starts on land and continues into the depths, offering a very convenient approach by boat or paddle board.

In the Dampier Strait area,  there are well known sand spits famous with the Instagram crowd. However, with this fame on social media, there are often too many people looking for the perfect selfie. The Samata crew know the less well trodden paths which offer brilliant white, sandy beaches well away from the social set. These are often accompanied by wonderful snorkelling spots and are the perfect spot for a beach BBQ.

The Misool area is a vast expanse with possibly the prettiest views in the area. Stunning cliffs overlook a myriad of small islands, lagoons, and coves. There are dozens of small, white sand beaches, some of which are always accessible and others only visible at low tide. Locations such as Daram and Yilliet are home to otherworldly soft sand, perfect for beach combing or suntanning.
