Kamaka Lake is located in Lomira village, also known as Kamaka village, in Triton Bay, Kaimana, West Papua province. This lake is about 30 kilometers long, stretching out from Kamaka village to Saria village and it is about 1 kilometer wide. By the local community, this lake is also called Amafata Lake.

This lake is unique as it has an extreme difference between low and high tides for a period of 5 to 8 years. During low tide, the local community usually use the lake land for planting crops. You can find big fresh lobsters here.
