Wayag Lagoon

Wayag Lagoon Aerial


As an island nation with over 18,000 islands, Indonesia offers non stop aerial views. The recent popularity of drones has made the unique views from the air a standard for any serious photographer. Have you visited Wayag Lagoon or Raja Ampat?

Raja Ampat is located in West Papua province in eastern Indonesia. It’s a marine protected area that is well known for its incredible karst island landscapes. The myriad lagoons and shallow coral reefs provide an epic backdrop for aerial photography. To make conditions even better, the islands always boast a vibrant green jungle which contrasts well with the deep blue sea.

Wayag Lagoon is located in the far northern end of Raja Ampat. This protected lagoon is home to a variety of marine life including sharks and manta rays. For those who don’t have a drone there are two hills that can be climbed which also offer a stunning view. For those interested in marine pursuits it is one of the best places in the world to explore by kayak or paddle board as well as snorkel or scuba dive.
