Wayag, paradise found

Wayag, Raja Ampat. As we entered the pass into this marine reserve we were stunned by its out-of-this-world beauty. The labyrinth of inlets and turquoise bays with mushroom type islands in between truly is different from anything else we’ve seen. We had the whole place to ourselves for several days and then some buddies turned up who happened to have a drone and a dive compressor….

Pictures describe its beauty much better than I can ever put it in words 🌴
