liked this stop, which provided friendly and very helpful locals, a lovely beach to swim, and freshly cooked crayfish available right on the beach for around $10each.

nice place enjoyed the beach and looking around not to much to see but the snorkeling was great plenty of fish life well worth getting in to the water
I suggest you pay a local tour guide to take you walking round this island.No cars electricity etc here.Make sure you have you kina in small denominations as it is very hard to change.The kids charge 5kina to go in a dugout but no way an adult would fit.Snorkelling and swimming further up the beach.But beware they do use a shark caller made of coconut shell.They shake like a rattle in the water to encourage sharks.They catch and eat them of course..
Lots of children to greet you in their dugouts.But to small to dit an adult in.These small dugouts take approx 3months to make.The locals may come and sit next to you on the beach and smile.They are shy and want to hear you speak.So introduce yourself and ask them questions about their lives.Some speak pretty good English and are fascinated by us.It may be a bit unnerving if you didnt know 1st that they want to engage with you.
All the ports we visited in PNG were fantastic, unspoiled and every village had different costumes full of colour. Definitely not for retail therapy but if you like hand craft markets, beautiful beaches and friendly smiles its for you
