Raja Ampat, or the Four Kings, is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals in the northwest tip of Bird's Head Peninsula on the island of New Guinea, off the northeastern coast of Indonesia's West Papua province. The archipelago’s four main islands are Misool, Salawati, Batanta, and Waigeo, and the smaller island of Kofiau.

The Raja Ampat area contains the highest recorded diversity of marine life on Earth, according to Conservation International. Diversity is considerably greater than any other area sampled in the Coral Triangle composed of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and East Timor. Located at the heart of the world's coral reef biodiversity, Raja Ampat possesses the richest coral reef ecosystems in the world.
