    ALYUI FARM

    Atlas Pearls Alyui farm

    ABOUT ALYUI, RAJA AMPAT 

    Our Atlas Pearls farm site can be found in Raja Ampat, Alyui Bay a remote and pristine location. Raja Ampat meaning ‘Four Kings’ in Indonesian consists of four main islands Waigeo, Misool, Salawati and Batanta. From here the area is comprised of thousands of smaller islands throughout. The Atlas Pearl Farm is located closest to the Waigeo island.

     The Indonesian archipelago of Raja Ampat lies in the Coral Triangle, stretching from the Philippines to Timor to Papua New Guinea and known as the most biodiverse marine habitat on earth. There are many species here you won’t find anywhere else in the world. It has three-quarters of the world’s coral varieties and 10 times that of the Caribbean.

    The Atlas Pearls Alyui farm was launched in 1997 with 15 staff sharing tents set-up in the jungle but quickly became a self-sustaining hatchery to harvest pearling hub.

    ATLAS PEARL FARM EXPERIENCE

     Here at our Alyui bay farm and all other farms we take an environmentally friendly approach to our operations as the very nature of pearl farming requires pristine healthy eco-systems. Our Alyui pearl farm is where we harvest our precious oysters producing some of the worlds finest South Sea pearls. Our Farm tour experience provides visitors with a glimpse into the skill, time, and energy it takes to cultivate our pearls. Each oyster is given up to 4 years to grow in the pristine waters of Alyui bay before being harvested here at this very location. At the end of the tour guests can visit our farm store showcasing some of our most loved loose pearls, classic strands, and fine jewellery. The perfect opportunity for travellers to get a special one-of-a-kind piece to remember their travels in Alyui Bay.

    Please note due to current COVID-19 restrictions we are currently closed to visitors; we hope to re-open and welcome you soon.

    GETTING THERE

    Private or Charter Boat

    The pleasure and ease of travelling on your own private or chartered boat is that you can travel the islands of this region at your leisure. Your captain will be able to include a stop off at our Alyui Bay farm in your itinery on your request. Our farm and showroom are open by appointment so contact them ahead of time.

    Flying

    Alternatively, you will need to fly to Sorong which is served by Dominique Edward Osok Airport. Flights are available from Bali and Jakarta. From Jakarta there is a daily non-stop flight sometimes two during high season, with a flight time of 4 hours. There are no non-stop flights from Bali, so this flight requires an 8-10 hour stop-over in Makassar.

    Once you arrive in Sorong, use a taxi or car service to travel from the airport to the harbour where you can travel via ferry to the main island of Raja Ampat called Waisai. The ferry departs at 2pm daily and it takes approximately 2 hours to reach Waisai.

    Waisai is primarily a functioning transportation port with little to no other infrastructure and is not considered a tourist destination, however it functions as the key point for accessing the Raja Ampat islands. Booking accommodation in advance and boat transport to the surrounding islands is a must. Our farm and showroom are open by appointment so contact them ahead of time.
