WONDERFUL Kavieng, New Ireland province, remains arguably the most-beautiful town in Papua New Guinea.
The feature of the place, and the enter New Ireland for that matter, are the scenic and unspoiled beaches.
Kavieng is situated at the northern tip of New Ireland.
It has often been described as the typical “Somerset Maugham South Sea island port.”
It has a large, beautiful harbour and is a popular destination for sports fishing enthusiasts and cruising yachts.
Along the edge of the harbour is Nusa Parade, a gently curving road, shaded by huge trees, which passes many points of historical interest, the main market, the port, fisheries and the hospital.
Nusa Island Retreat, only a short two-minute boat ride across the harbour, has an excellent bar and restaurant set right on the beach complete with sand floor and tables made from coconut trees.
More and more tourists are visiting this part of paradise and you can also find out why with a visit there.
