I always wanted to visit this place since I watched the beautiful islands and islets in a docu. I can say now that I saw the most beautiful place on earth. We were lucky to visit it right after the pandemic so the croud wasn't back yet. I'm trullt in love with this place. I wish to see myself again in Piameno again!

It took an entire day to get there from Jakarta, on 2 planes, a ferry, and a motor boat. It was worth every minute of the journey to experience the stunning views.

We decided to forego a visit to Wayag as it was just too far away, and settled on Piaynemo instead. I think it was a great choice, because accessing Piaynemo is much easier, cheaper, and the view is, in my opinion, nearly as good. There are 300 steps to the top and it's a fairly easy climb, done in ten minutes or less. I suggest an afternoon visit that way the sun is at your back and you can get the best possible photos.

I will be honest this place is beautiful but not worth a trip just to go here. If you’re going to be in the area for diving or other things, then worth it. Other than that, it looks exactly like the pictures on the Internet save yourself the trouble and then annoyance of so many people. The tour boats seem in a hurry and they want to get you to the next destination and there’s very little time to actually enjoy what you’re doing. I traveled from Java to go there, since people said it was so amazing. We must remember it depends to each their own what’s amazing.

We went during the low season, and believe me a slow season for a reason. The boat ride there was frightening and extremely dangerous. Picture getting slammed around in a vessel hurling through the ocean, like a constant body beating for hours. We paid over $700 for a day private boat, and the ocean was so rough and dangerous we cut it short. The crewmembers were even scared.

Go during the high season when the ocean is safe

five star place to visit, so nice and beautiful, any homestay around the area takes guests there. I beleive the trip is a little too expensive (750.000IDR for each person, about 50Euro each) but it's a must-do visit in Raya Ampat. bring a raincoat for the boat ride even with a sunny day:)

The view is beautiful from the observation deck but we almost died while our tiny boat with two 40 hp engines tried to navigate the open ocean. In any country with a functional, responsible government, these tiny boats would be banned from bringing foreign tourists here but not in Indonesia. We met numerous people who turned around, also people who had our experience, who made it but realized how lucky there were. No one we spoke to would do it again.

Wayag always considered too far away and too expensive.. it's Raja Ampat iconic place. If you haven't enough time and money to visit wayag, Pianemo is best alternative. its same with wayag in mini version which near from waisai, have easy ladder/step access and cheaper than go to Wayag. stunning view when you reach the top.

This is the lookout of Pianemo Islands. The wooden stairs is very well maintained. The steps were not that merciless, it was only 200 steps or so. When I went there on May 2017, additional wooden stairs and platforms were being built to accommodate more visitors.

After spend sometime to enjoy the breathtaking views, we went back to the dock and visited stalls selling coconuts, virgin coconut oil, salted fish, and snacks. I tried the shell snack, very tough but so good. I bought the salted fish (Spanish mackerel), it's the best! There were also some men selling the coconut crab (to be cooked), it might be listed on CITES, you can have a try if you don't feel guilty about eating some vulnerable species.

This place has a toilet, you need to cross the water to the adjacent island. It is worth to visit as well as it offers beautiful panoramas.

it’s totally worth the boat ride to get there, and the walk up to the viewing point. We were lucky that the rain held off for two or three hours, so we could get some decent photographs. NB - it poured with rain after our visit for 36 hours - this is no longer the dry season).

There are a few stalls at the landing stage, where you can get a cup of mocha, powder into a cup type, but actually quite tasty. Other snacks on sale too, and pure locally made coconut oil. Please don’t buy the huge coconut crabs they’re trying to sell, as they’re a protected and rare species.

Otherwise, not to be missed!
