Raja Ampat - Other Island Activities and Our Farewell

Besides diving and snorkelling, other activities on Pulau Pef were kayaking and hiking.

A boardwalk walk through the mangroves led to a sheltered bay where all the boats were docked when not in use. There was a longer hiking trail through another bush area but unfortunately we didn't have time, or didn't make time, to do it. 

Hiking to the top of the "mountain," which had a guiding rope and a couple ladders on the steeper parts, led to a lookout at the top. Great views down to the resort on one side and, on the other, the sheltered bay and kayaking route. We should have gone up here at sunset!

A beautiful area to meander in a kayak.

I'm not very good at "selfies"
Daniela, one of the guests from Switzerland, joined us on our kayak outing. She had never been in a kayak before!

Dancing to the music. This older gentleman in front really had the moves!

Before our flight left Sorong, one of the Raja4Divers staff (who grew up on Sorong) took us to the local market. Really interesting to see and Andrew posted a few photos.
