Jayapura is the capital of the Indonesian-administered territory of Papua on the island of New Guinea. It is situated on a bay called Teluk Yos Sudarso, aka Humboldt Bay. The city lies just 32 km west of the border with Papua New Guinea. Jayapura – ‘City of Victory’ – was named by Suharto when Indonesia took over sovereignty from the Dutch in 1963. The city of one quarter million, lies just 280 km south of the equator, surrounded by hills and mountains. Jayapura is a big, bustling and fascinating city relative to the region. While it is safe, cheap and interesting, the city is not at all tourist-oriented and English is not widely spoken.

Halteltekamp Beach is the best beach in the vicinity of Jayapura. The beach is clean, but you have to bring your own food and drink as nothing is sold there. Close to the city is Yotefa Bay, with its spectacle of half sunken WWII ships, beached tanks and landing craft, which are of historical interest. Following the ouster of Japanese forces in 1944, the area served as General Douglas MacArthur's headquarters for the Philippines campaign. Overlooking the city is General MacArthur memorial, and you pass some Dutch colonial houses on the road.

Shopping options are quite minimal and restricted to souvenir penis gourds, bows and arrows and stone axes, though you may have difficulty getting these through customs into your own country. Do check first. Most tourists head inland to Wamena to see the highland Danis, or down to Agatz to see the Asmat people of the south coast. There is good hiking around Qamena or you could try climbing to the waterfalls not far up Mount Cyclops, but check current regulations and take a guide. For others, a guided drive to the very picturesque Sentai Lake is also wonderful. Check out malarial areas.
