General
Pulau Supiori Nature Reserve comprises an area of 42,000 ha., which is almost the whole island of Pulau Supiori. The mountainous island, located a little northwest of Pulau Biak, consists of rocky coasts, mangrove, sub-montane and montane forests and is home to several bird species endemic to the Pulau Supiori – Biak – Numfor area. Altitudes range from sea-level to the 1,034 m. Gunung Bonsupiori.
Biak Utara Nature Reserve lies adjacent to Pulau Supiori just before the bridge connecting the two islands. The small reserve comprises an area of 11,000 ha. of hilly forest surrounding the 695 m. Gunung Manseren.
Access
Pulau Supiori can be reached with a hired boat from Wardo or Warsa at Pulau Biak. Expect to pay about $100. A cheaper alternative is to wait for the irregular public boat to Pulau Supiori or try your luck over the road. Pulau Biak and Pulau Supiori are connected by a relatively new bridge.
Accommodation
There is no official accommodation at Pulau Supiori but you can ask the kepala desa or camat, who lives in Sowek. Biak has several possibilities.
