Teluk Wondama Regency or Wondama Bay Regency (Indonesian: Kabupaten Teluk Wondama; Dutch: Regentschap Wondammen-baai) is a regency of West Papua province of Indonesia. The Regency contains several coastal districts in Wondiboy Peninsula but also including a number of islands in the southwest part of Cenderawasih Bay. It covers a land area of 4,844.035 km2, and had a population of 26,321 at the 2010 Census[2] and 41,644 at the 2020 Census;[3] the official estimate as at mid 2023 was 44,534 (comprising 23,395 males and 21,139 females).[1] The administrative centre lies in the village of Rasiei.

Geography

Geographically, the district is located between 132°35' - 134°45' East Longitude and 0°15' - 3°25' South Latitude.[4]

Most of the islands in Wondama Bay Regency are surrounded by coral reef that is teeming with rich marine life. Rasiei, the capital of Wondama Bay, is located at the foot of the Wandammen (Wondiboy) Mountains which are covered by pristine tropical rainforest. The coral reef and tropical rainforest have become important tourist attractions in this regency. The Department of Tourism and Culture of Wondama Bay Regency, in cooperation with the Indonesian Tourist Guide Association, has launched a website called Wondama Tourism to attract visitors to the regency.
