Kaimana is a small town located in the southern region of West Papua province. It is the capital of Kaimana regency. It is the gateway to enter Triton bay. Most of its land is still covered by tropical rainforest which is the natural habitat of various species of animals such as soa-soa lizards, cuscus possum, pigeons, birds of paradise, parrots, and birdwing butterflies. Triton bay is one of the richest marine environments in the world with more than one thousand species of reef fishes, hundreds of hard corals, and tens of mantis shrimp. Visitors who go to Kaimana can enjoy snorkeling over pristine coral reefs to see parrotfish, cardinalfish, puffers, groupers, wrasses, whalesharks, and a lot of other fish and marine animals.
Please, consider this itinerary as a reference, it can be modified depending on the weather and your own preference.
