Rumba Boo Islets

Birding walk

The Rumba Boo Islets lie off the northeast coast of Salawati Island in the Raja Ampat archipelago, just half an hour's boat ride away from Sorong. These sandy atolls are an excellent place to come to grips with a variety of waders and wetland birds, besides sporting a number of so-called 'supertramps': wide-ranging colonists that thrive on species-poor small islands. Great as a relaxed half day's out birding in West Papua.


Possible year-round, but most certainly best from September to April.
