    Soup Kepala Ikan, Arumbai Hotel Restaurant

    by Yudhis Written Oct 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Arumbai restaurant provides local and international taste. The restaurant is located just inside the hotel, its open for public. But do keep in mind that they have 'siesta break' at noon, from 14.00 - 17.00

    Favorite Dish: Try the one the my favorite dish, Soup Kepala Ikan (fish soup). You can just imidietly smell the freshness of this soup!

    WWII Museum, Biak

    by Yudhis Written Oct 22, 2004

    Around the Island you can find many World War 'junk' like parts of the plane. There's a small museum near the entrance of Japanese cave, plenty cool WWII stuff.

    Biak had great strategic significance during World War II, when the Japanese occupied the island.

    The soldiers occupied three large rooms built inside the cave. The Japanese soldiers managed to shoot down a U.S. plane from their hiding place. However, eventually the US army came to know where the Japanese soldiers were hiding. So in the early morning of July 7, 1944, troops of General McArthur's forces attacked the cave.

    The cave was bombarded. The Americans also dropped drums of gasoline into the hideout and blasted them from the air, setting the cave into fire. The cave burned for several months. Some 3,000 Japanese soldiers were trapped and killed in the attack.

    Located in the north part of Biak, Warsa Waterfall. Great way to enjoy the fresh water and swim with the local kids. Plenty small jambu fruits around the area.
