The natural scenery of the northern coast region of Manokwari is very beautiful. I went there two days ago on a survey to identify potential places along the Pantura areas (that's the name of the northern coast in bahasa Indonesia) which can be developed for eco-tourism project. Pantura stands for Pantai Utara or meaning literally Beach North.
Nuni village - the place where you can eat lobster
Some of the beaches have black sand and white sand. For me, the area near Pulau Kaki or Kaki island is potential for marine sport activities. In addition, tourists can enjoy eating lobster in Nuni village, a small village right across from Kaki island. When I was in Nuni, I had a chance of recording some videos of a boy going to the sea to catch lobsters. Actually the lobsters had been caught before.
Watching Eagle in Asai
After taking pictures of the beautiful Nuni village and its Kaki island, I continued my trip to Asai. Here the beach stretches along a small bay. Some Dutch families built their houses in Asai overlooking the Pacific Ocean. They have been living here since early 2000. There is a tall tree near the beach of Asai where eagles use it to build their nest. When visiting one of the Dutch families, I was able to see the eagle's nest clearly. I managed to spot a nest using binoculars and took some pictures of it using my digital camera. Here in Asai, I had a chance of swimming in cool fresh water of a small river not far from a house that belonged to a Dutch family.
