Sailing Numfoor Papua Indonesia


An undeveloped island with a number of potential anchorages.  We anchored in 30’ coral and sand just outside of a small shallow inlet on Numfoor’s west side.  Anchorage was open to the west.  This is a lovely spot with a dramatic undercut limestone coast and a couple small islets standing out in a sand-and-rubble bottomed, very shallow bay.  Manam island, just to the west, reportedly has good snorkeling and some WWII wrecks.  Several friendly villagers paddled out to exhaust our limited bahasa vocabulary.
