Biak is a small but important island of Cenderawasih Bay near the northern coast of Papua, an Indonesian province, and is just northwest of New Guinea. Biak is the largest island in its small archipelago, and has many atolls, reefs, and corals and is home to a Nature Reserve. This is a bird sanctuary that include beautiful varieties of parrots and cockatoos.
Biak was first sighted by Europeans by the Portuguese navigator Jorge de Menezes in 1526 and was mapped in the Portuguese charts of Gaspar Viegas around 1537. In World War II, a strategic airfield of the Imperial Japanese Army was located there, serving as a base for operations in the Pacific theatre. American forces eventually captured the island during the Battle of Biak. Biak town was the site of a massacre that happened here in 1968.
