Video | Our remote destination for this weekend getaway is the little tropical Pokpok Island in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea.
The perfect tropical island for fishing, snorkeling and island hopping. Righto, let do this! First things first, we stock up on fuel for the boat, head to Pokpok Island, wander the beach, snorkel, fish and then cruise in the boat for a glimpse of another tropical island, Kobu Island.
Video | A weekend stay at Pidia Village in Bougainville has a bit of a New Zealand connection, as it was the filming location for the movie Mr Pip, staring Hugh Laurie and Eka Darville, and is based on Kiwi Lloyd Jones’ Booker Prize nominated 2006 novel. It also happens to be an amazingly beautiful place to spend an adventurous or relaxing weekend at the newly refurbished Pidia Village Mini Guest Haus. It goes without saying that we chose the adventurous option!
Video | The Island of Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia. If you’re looking for a lesser known, off the grid, destination for adventure, Pohnpei in Micronesia should be added to your bucket list for 2018! Famous for its surfing, it also has amazing diving and snorkeling, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, hiking – you’ve got to do the Six Waterfalls Hike – as well as the magical ancient ruins of Nan Madol, waterfalls and tons of WW2 history.
