Islands Region

(4.4/5 based on 130+ reviews for 3 attractions)
Things to do: museums, adventure
Made up of the Bismarck Archipelago and northeastern Solomon Islands Archipelago, Papua New Guinea's Islands Region remains the least densely populated part of the country. From the wreckage-strewn waters around New Britain to the endless beaches and forested mountains of long, thin New Ireland, the islands offer a rich variety of experiences on both land and sea. At the region's northernmost borders, the tiny islands and coral atolls of Manus Province stretch all the way to the equator. At its southern tip, the volcanoes of Bougainville smoke and sputter. Islands Region has been visited by explorers, missionaries, traders, and armed forces (during World War II), but the landscape and indigenous people remain for the most part untouched by the outside world.
