New Ireland

New Ireland is an island off the coast of PNG, it is covered with sleepy villages and copra plantations. The Dutch discovered the island in the 1500s, but it wasn’t until nearly 300 years later that British explorer William Dampier realised that it wasn’t just part of the mainland.
The nicest place to visit is the east coast where you find picturesque villages. Banana boats heading towards New ireland can be caught from Kavieng, the main town on New Ireland, with a population of 5,000. For those with a taste for adventure Krk island is just 15 minutes away by boat.
