Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands - Morobe & Madang Provinces (Chapter)
This is the Morobe & Madang Provinces chapter from Lonely Planet’s Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands guidebook.
If you have just come down from the Highlands, Morobe and Madang’s beaches and bays will be a welcome change. Both offer plenty of scope to grab a snorkel, slap on some sunscreen and banana-boat hop your way between bays.
- suit up to dive the wrecks and carnage of WWII or snorkel over the psychedelic reefs around Madang
- watch leatherback turtles scramble ashore at Kamiali Wildlife Management Area under a full moon
- be one of the first to witness the beetle-bejewelled singsings of the isolated Simbai villages high in Bismarck Range
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Morobe Province, Lae, Salamaua, Wau & Around, Black Cat Trail, Madang Province, Madang, Krangket Island, Balek Wildlife Sanctuary, Ohu, Jais Aben Area, Alexishafen, Malolo, Ulingan Bay, Karkar Island, Bogia, Hansa Bay & Manam Island, and Simbai.
