CENDRAWASIH

A diver's wildest dream

The immense bay of Cendrawasih (which means Bird of Paradise Bay) is tucked into the crook of Bird’s Head Peninsula on the wild north coast of New Guinea Island. Despite being Indonesia’s largest marine national park (14,535 square kilometers) since 2002, this area remains so isolated and wild as to be almost undocumented.

There are marine species here that have never been documented and, among the larger known inhabitants, you could see rays, dolphins, four species of turtles, sharks, dugong, whaleshark and even blue whales. Up to 60 per cent of the entire area is covered in live corals, making this potential World Heritage Site a diver’s dream.
