After multiple trips to Raja Ampat, we FINALLY made it down south to Misool.
Don’t get me wrong, the northern region of the remote archipelago Raja Ampat is also mind-blowingly beautiful, but the southern parts of Misool are definitely further and thus less visited by travelers.
ALSO, there is a natural phenomenon here that I have been dying to see for years now….
A JELLYFISH LAKE!
Yup. It’s a clear saltwater lake isolated between tall green limestone cliffs in the Indo-Pacific (as if that isn’t cool enough already).
Somewhere in time, jellyfish got trapped in this lake and became isolated from the outside world.
With favorable conditions and no natural predators, they thrived and evolved in this isolated ecosystem for thousands of years.
The end result?
An isolated clear lake with an exploded population of jellyfish bobbing around.
Did I mention that they are absolutely harmless to us?
Yup, you can swim and freedive in this unique natural phenomenon whilst colliding with these cute gelatinous blobs.
