Kaimana

Kaimana

Kaimana is a pleasant little town with an atmosphere of bygone Dutch times. In 1962 the last Dutch soldiers left Kaimana, after the Netherlands had handed over New Guinea to the United Nations.

In the area you will find ancient petroglyphs in beautiful nature. These are best admired in Bicari Bay, half an hour by boat from Kaimana.
Nature around Sebakar bay is also unsurpassed. You will find colorful butterflies, orchids, coral reefs and birds of paradise.

Divers will of course go to the Triton Bay divers resort. The resort is located on Aiduma Island, about 2 hours by boat from Kaimana. The Triton bay has an underwater world that is comparable to that of Raja Ampat. Without mantas, yes, but with the whale sharks. More than 30 dive sites are now known in and around Triton Bay. You can choose 2 or 3 dives per day (total 10 or 15 dives).
Once a week the Triton Bay various visits to the whale sharks, within an hour by boat.
Various excursions can be made from the resort to, for example, the Karst islands, Sisir or Froma Jaya, where birds of paradise can be admired around sunrise and sunset.

Tourism is still in its infancy in Kaimana, but for those who do not expect luxury, Kaimana offers plenty of pleasant surprises. The best time for Kaimana and Triton Bay is from November to May.

Kaimana is not the easiest place to get to. Airlines regularly change their flight schedules. In 2020 there will be daily connections with Sorong and several times a week to Manokwari.
