Silversea Luxury Cruises To Pulau Biak

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Pulau Biak, Indonesia

To say that Pulau Biak was unspoiled would be an understatement. Located in the Cendrawasih Bay of Papua (Irian Jaja), west of Papua New Guinea, Biak Island itself is the biggest island in the Biak-Numfor archipelago. The archipelago proper is made up of 67 islands, each more stunning than the last. One of PNG’s biggest offshore islands, people here are relaxed and friendly and open to the many opportunities that foreign visitors can offer. Those wishing for full immersion should try anything cooked by Barapen (warm rocks). View more

Delicious! Unsurprisingly for a remote island in the Bismark Sea, waters here are a diver’s paradise. Not only are they clear and teeming with marine life, but the sunken M/V Pacific Gas is home to a coral reef, lionfish, ghost pipefish, schooling jacks, snapper, sweetlips and batfish. However, if diving, snorkelling, kayaking and general beach life is not your bag, Pulau Biak does offer other opportunities. The island’s’ colourful past as a sanctuary for Japanese soldiers during WWII means that those wishing to explore more onshore will enjoy a trip to the Biak cave museum, a Karst cave used by Japanese soldiers as a hiding place and for storage. Bird lovers will also enjoy exploring the island's large and lovely bird park, which is home to Cendrawasihs (Papua Birds of Paradise) and the endemic species of Kasuaris and Mambruk.
