Batanta Island Waterfall Trip
Batanta Island is a beautiful island around 30 minutes by boat from Papua Paradise Eco Resort. Leaving at 8am the tour starts with a short walk through the mangroves to a small but beautiful waterfall. You can stop here to take photographs and admire the view before starting the 40-minute trek to the larger falls.
You’ll need some good waterproof walking shoes as the terrain passes through clear jungle streams and forest paths, as well as some steep rocky terrain. When you get to the falls, you are free to swim in the fresh water, explore the cave behind or recline on the rocks around the falls. Photo opportunities are plentiful, and there are a wide variety of birds, butterflies and other wildlife to see. Snacks and drinks are served, and when the group is ready, it’s time to trek back to the boat. This tour arrives back at the resort around lunchtime and guests will need a hat, sunblock, sunglasses and a bathing suit.
