Loved this port of call. It's likely not for everyone Very hot and humid Port area is quite small with little to no shopping Local people very friendly and tour to a native village was very interesting

You must do the tour of an aboriginal village. The poverty of the poor country is evident and they rely on tourism for their economy. We did not witness the stories of high crime.
Cultural festival done through ship was about the only thing on offer.It was a Sunday so everything closed.The cultural festival was well worth it.Such beautiful traditional costumes and dancing
Like almost everyone else on the ship, we went on the Alotau Cultural Festival tour. The locals dress up and put on a colourful, musical and cultural extravaganza with a sail on a war canoe being the highlight of the trip. Beyond this tour the options are extremely limited. The very small town has little to offer and the folks are extremely poor by western standards.
