Beneath Misool's satellite isles are a wealth of marine habitats to explore. To the southeast, limestone towers plunge deep into the water and are proliferated with corals. Shaped by the moving water over the years, you'll delight in gliding under overhangs and diving through caverns inhabited by snappers. Sea fans and whips sway as millions of fish dart all around.

PM: In the afternoon, we go ashore for a hike to the traditional village of Lenmolas. Here you have the extraordinary occasion to meet the local inhabitants and learn about Indonesian history and culture. Besides this village, Misool is almost uninhabited. Let the beautiful scenery embrace you as you venture through rich forests and hike around hilly landscapes. Sit back and relax in our comfortable tenders while we take you cruising into the labyrinths of a thousand lagoons, islands and caves through the magic surround of Misool Island. A swim through Tomolol’s impressive vaulted cave is undoubtedly one of Raja Ampat’s more memorable activities.

As evening approaches, the open-air dining area is the perfect place for another breathtaking sunset over the islands.
