Daroyen village compared to other Raja Ampat islands is a less populated area situated on a little island of Betew by Gam. The closest village Sawinggrai is five minutes away by boat and only possible reach by boat. The forest in day time full of birds singing. The night time is when nocturnal animals such as coconut crabs out scavenging and walking sharks swimming on shore to feed on small crabs. A short walk across the forest up to the hill overlooking the sea is a perfect spot to watch sunrise and sunset.
We are surrounded by the blue water mangroves connected to Gam island. This unique location offer solitude from the crowds of mass tourism and because it is at the centre protected area and mangroves, the area offers high concentration of amazing biodiversity from big fish to small invertebrates.
One of the thing that makes Daroyen location is unique. A ten minute walk to the back across jungle, you will be met by mangrove and sandy area. In the low tide, this place is dry. You can walk toward Gam island. During high tide, this place is a haven of various nudibranchs. On the west side is a “Lagoon” well protected from strong current and home of baby sharks.
