Information about Jellyfish Lake

Nestled in the remote region of Misool, Raja Ampat, Jellyfish Lake offers a unique and mesmerizing experience for visitors. This secluded marine lake is home to thousands of harmless, non-stinging jellyfish, creating an otherworldly atmosphere as you swim among them. Surrounded by lush mangroves and limestone cliffs, the lake provides a serene and captivating environment perfect for both adventure and relaxation.

Jellyfish Lake is a geological wonder, formed over thousands of years. The jellyfish have evolved in isolation, losing their ability to sting due to the lack of predators in the lake.

The experience is safe and enchanting, suitable for all ages and swimming abilities.

Beyond the lake, Misool offers a wealth of activities for nature lovers. Explore the surrounding mangroves by kayak, hike through pristine rainforest trails, or relax on the white sandy beaches. Misool is a haven for eco-tourism, with a strong focus on conservation and sustainable travel. Whether you’re seeking adventure or tranquility, Jellyfish Lake and its surroundings provide a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
