Being the biggest sea conservation in Indonesia, Cendrawasih Bay is the pride of West Papua Province. Apart from beaches and flora, the site consists of mostly water. It becomes the home of hundreds of species of fishes and mollusks. In order to observe those creatures, we should dive in the water, though. Sometimes, dolphins, sharks, and turtles are seen as well. These beautiful animals are worth an exploration. Everyone should take an opportunity to witness all of those sea creatures!
It is true Cendrawasih Bay is famous for its underwater richness and beauty. However, we have many other fun activities to do in the location. For example, we can explore small islands, which are scattered near to the bay. One of the most famous ones is Mioswaar Island. It is the home of a secluded cave with its hot spring, which is worth a visit. The other recommended islands to explore are Nusrowi, Numfor, and Yoop. That means island hopping also becomes a fun activity there.
Some people come to Cendrawasih Bay to witness a small research about whale shark directly. In this case, the best locations to visit are Nabire and Wondama. Cendrawasih National Park is located in 5 different regencies and 2 provinces. No wonder, the size is amazing and people take much time to explore all parts of the area!
We can asloconduct an observation of local animals and birds in the location. The most popular ones are kuskus and sea eagles. Those exotic animals are beautiful and unique, so we feel lucky when encountering them. Another famous animal is CervusTimorensis or “BurungRusa”. The birds can be found in the reeds, but they rarely appear. There is also a formation of seagrass, on which sea turtles live. Another important habitat is the mangroves, which is located near to the beach. It is worth an exploration, as well.
