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..
Arrived to this port in very inclement conditions and walked to the nearby village in the rain. Many villages line the roadway selling their wares, and some local boys act as guides on your journey to receive a tip for their services when you get back to the shoreline. Took a walk along the beach and found them selling freshly cooked crayfish for A$20 each. This was a very tasty snack before swimming in the warm tropical waters and returning back to the ship after enjoying this hospitality.

Interesting to say the least. Felt sorry for the poor locals who were overrun with ship passengers. Lots of local wares on sale at the markets. I was surprised that all our items were allowed back into Australia. We bough woven fans here as so hot. Later in the day we were back on the ship when the natives started to fight each other. The captain blew his horn and all remaining crew and passengers hot tailed it back to the tenders and back to the ship.

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.
Very pretty worth seeing

Weather here made getting off the boat an issue. Not a fault of the stop itself.

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.
