The Incredible Marine Life (2/20)

Raja Ampat has four times the diversity of the Caribbean.

At a time when coral reefs are vanishing and remote destinations are becoming increasingly accessible, Indonesia’s Raja Ampat archipelago is still relatively unknown, despite boasting white-sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and a thriving reef system-one of the most biodiverse places on earth. Located at the heart of the Coral Triangle, the more than 1,400 islands and islets is an otherworldly tropical paradise, where an abundance of life thrives below the surface, including more than 1,300 species of fish, five species of rare and endangered sea turtles, and 75% of all known species of coral-more than 600.
