Lushness of Papua’s rainforest and Triton Bay’s underwater sanctuary, the last best place untouched by time.
Kaimana Marine Protected Area encompasses 6,000 km2 (2,300 miles2), which is located in West Papua Province, Indonesia.
Fak-Fak & Triton Bay counted marine biodiversity are 1,005 species of fish, 471 species of hard coral, and 28 species of mantis shrimp.
Triton bay is known as home of endemic species. Endemism in Triton evolved the same way as it has throughout the Bird’s Head of Papua.
Beginning ten millions years ago when shifting tectonic plate caused geological upheavals and formed new island chains across Indonesia Archipelago. Triton’s reef developed into a crossroad for current-borne marine larvae originating from Banda Sea. Pushed by the shallow barrier of Arafuru Sea, the eastern edge of these currents moves into Triton and Etna Bays.
Another contributing factor is the tremendous volume of fresh water flowing from the Mainland of Papua into the sea. Most marine larvae cannot survive in low saline environment, unlike here. They survive and flourish.
It is the best last place untouched by time.
Indonesia straddles the equator giving it 365 days of summer with both a dry and wet season. Expect temperatures between 22-30℃ (72-92℉).
Best time to visit is October - April when the sea is calm and the visibility is optimal. You will undoubtedly experience some rain nearly everyday, which keeps the vegetation green all year round.
