Nurai Island

Upon your arrival in Sorong, you can take a fast boat from the Sorong Fishery Port to Waisai, the capital city of the Raja Ampat district. Then from Waisai you must take a longboat to Wayag which takes some six to eight hours. Rental of this longboat is about Rp 6 million (about US$ 550) per day. Liveaboard packages are a comfortable alternative, and you can find these boats in Sorong, or as far away as Bali which is their marketing hub and port for businesses offering dive packages. Some of the liveaboards are very luxurious, and some are unique and quite fantastic.

  • You can expect some intense long days of activity in a demanding environment.
  • We might be known for our beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters, but there’s so much more to the island…
  • We felt immediately at home, the house such a relaxed and cosy atmosphere.
  • By day, layer a frill-hemmed slip dress over a long-sleeved T-shirt for a feminine take on ‘90s grunge, or turn to our ribbed jersey bodycon dresses for easy everyday styling.
  • At 74 acres, Necker Island sits in turquoise waters surrounded by coral reefs, fringed with beautiful white sandy beaches and is home to the most spectacular wildlife.

It’s our favorite place that we’ve been to on our entire trip. Alternatively, you can hire a speedboat to take you straight from Sorong to Wayag for a five-hour journey. This will cost about Rp 9 million (about US$ 750) a day.
