Snorkeling at Warduwer Beach of Raja Ampat

There is a nice beach in southern region of Waigeo island. Its name is Warduwer beach. It is a nice place for snorkeling and freediving. The shallow water has a wide flat area which is safe for children who are learning how to swim. For adults, they can choose to swim in deeper waters where coral reef teemed with a lot of species of fish and other marine creatures can be seen there such as butterflyfish, moorish idol, anemonefish, parrotfish, tasselled wobbegong, and a lot more. There are also blue, brown, and orange sea stars, Christmas Tree Worms.

There is a beach resort at this beach. Its name is RAJA AMPAT FLOW (RAFLOW) RESORT.  There are 15 bungalows and 5 standard rooms for visitors to sleep comfortably while enjoying their holiday in the regency. RAFLOW Resort can organize sightseeing boat tours to karst islands in the nearby Kabui bay or to such places as Piaynemo and Wayag. Guests who stay in RAFLOW Resort can share the cost of the boat tours.

Raja Ampat Flow Resort has got snorkeling equipment such as mask, snorkel and fins which visitors can rent. However, I recommend that tourists bring their own equipment that perfectly fit on their faces and feet.
I highly recommend that visitors bring a good underwater camera to take pictures or videos of the marine life. An action camera such as GoPro or a pocket camera such as Nikon W300 and Olympus TG-5 is a good choice as a snorkeling companion.
Raja Ampat Flow resort is also a nice place for visitors who like birdwatching. The green vegetation that grow at the surrounding neighborhood is the habitat of a lot of birds including Pinon Imperial Pigeon, Pied Imperial Pigeon, Wompoo Fruit Dove, Claret-breasted Fruit Dove, Pink-spotted Fruit Dove, Beach Kingfisher, Sacred Kingfisher, Hook-billed Kingfisher, Rufous-bellied Kookaburra, Yellow-faced Myna, Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Eclectus Parrot, Palm Cockatoo, Spangled Drongo, Singing Starling, Pacific Swallow Torresian Crow, Eastern Osprey, Brahminy Kite, White-bellied Sea Eagle, Lesser-crested Tern, White-breasted Woodswallow, and a lot more.
