Silversea Luxury Cruises À Pulau Padaidori

Pulau Padaidori is part of the Padaido Islands east of Biak which in turn is the most important of the Indonesian Schouten Islands. The area was one of the earliest to be visited by European explorers and the name of the archipelago goes back to a Dutch visit in 1615. The Padaido Islands consist of 29 islands, which are split into the Upper and Lower Padaido. Pulau Padaidori is the northernmost of the Upper Padaido. Only nine islands are inhabited and Pulau Padaidori has three small villages. View more

Manioc, corn, taro and vegetables are grown on the island, coconut palm trees have been planted and chicken and pigs are raised. Most residents are fishermen and their catch, as well as the agricultural products are sold on Biak. Relatively rarely visited by outsiders, an area of 183,000 hectares was declared the Padaido Marine Tourism Park in 1997. The park is of great importance, as there are three types of ecosystem that can be protected this way: a small mangrove area on Pulau Padaidori, sea grass areas, and coral reefs. Damselfishes, butterfly fishes, surgeonfishes and wrasses predominate, but the sea grass fields are often visited by marine turtles. Swimming, snorkeling and diving in these beautiful waters is gaining more and more importance for tourism.
