WHY VISIT THE ISLANDS OF PAPUA NEW GUINEA
PNG has an extensive coastline dotted with stunning outlying islands. Described as the Scandinavia of the Pacific, the coastal scenery is spectacular. Spectacular enough above water it is the underwater world that is really magical and diving here is a wonderfully unusual experience.
The coast has a laid back feel, life is slower, as is the paddling , nothing is rushed, compared to the mountains' low level anarchy, owing to the isolating topography. In Tufi it is easy to see why there is only one policeman.
ABOUT THE ISLANDS
The coast of Tufi’s peninsula, or Cape Nelson as it was named by the British, is a place where sea and mountains meet. A paradise accessed only by boat or air. Gnarled green fingers stretch out into the sea creating fjords of hidden surprises – technically they are rais as they were created by volcano as opposed to ice. These rais give the region a very particular fingerprint of turquoise coral bays, surrounded by steep ridges covered in rainforest and kunai grasslands.
