Join Island Dreams' tour guide Ken Knezick on an Indonesia scuba diving adventure…Papua Paradise Eco Resort -- Papua Paradise Eco Resort is located on Birie Island in Raja Ampat, Indonesia. The island is divided into two main parts: guest side and service side. On the north-west guest side, with ten bungalows built over the coral reef with natural materials by traditional construction method, Papua Paradise Eco Resort offers unforgettable diving holidays on an island surrounded by peaceful white sandy beach and stunning coral reefs. Each spacious 60 m2 bungalow has its own 20 m2 massive terrace, on which guests may enjoy the breeze and the sunset lying in a hammock. The 6 m2 indoor bathroom (with eco warm water) offers a good standard of comfort. Fresh water from the island runs in the bathrooms, but drinking water is also provided. The rooms are not electrically air-conditioned. The climate is comfortable with a light ocean breeze. The tropical sun heats up your water during the day, for a nice hot-water shower after a great day of diving. Boat Diving - The resort offers more than 30 dive sites, on some of the world's richest and most prolific coral reefs. Crystal-clear bays, mangrove shallows, and deep water reefs offer perfect opportunities for both big fish lovers and macro enthusiasts. The water temperature is 28-29 ºC (82-84 F) all year around, visibility is 15-20 meters (45-60 feet) in general. The best diving is in depths from 5 to 25 meters (15-45 feet) and it is ideal for Nitrox divers.
Great House Reef - Those who prefer staying close to the resort will appreciate 150 meter long house reef in front of the resort, great for either diving or snorkeling. Guests can observe schools of varied reef fish, baby black tip reef sharks, turtles, wobbegongs, pygmy seahorses and even the very rare mandarin fish - all right in front of the dive center. There are also blue spotted rays, colorful parrotfish, common seahorses, shy pipefish, hunting jackfish are everyday visitors of the house reef. Lucky swimmers can also meet the dugongs which occasionally pass by.
Non-diving Activities - Beyond diving, snorkeling and relaxing at Papua Paradise Eco Resort, the nearby islands and wild jungle forests give the opportunity to other activities as well.
