Jayapura (Indonesian: Kota Jayapura; Dutch: Hollandia) is the provincial capital of Papua, Indonesia. It is situated on the island of New Guinea, on Yos Sudarso Bay (formerly known as Humboldt Bay). Jayapura is the largest city in the Indonesian part of New Guinea.

It is served by Sentani Airport, located near Lake Sentani. A highway connects the city to Skow, a small town near the border with Papua New Guinea and continues beyond the border to Vanimo.

International travel to Jayapura is almost non-existent and as such you are unlikely to meet other tourists. But many missionaries from around the world actually work here. This seems to mean that tourist touts are rare and beggars are not in the city. Furthermore, the closest thing a market stall holder will do to have you look at their goods is smile.


The nearest International airport is Sentani Airport, located about 60 km from downtown. There are direct flight (with stopovers, but no change of aircraft) from Jakarta, Bali, Makassar, Ambon and within Papua. To make arrangements for a taxi from Airport to city centre, contact one the taxi operators or travel agents that have counter in the Airport.

Popular attractions in Jayapura:

• Teluk Youtefa

• State Museum of Papua Province

• Danau Sentani (Lake Sentani)
