Laughlan Islands - Papua New Guinea
The Laughlan Islands are an archipelago of several low-lying coral islands situated off Milne Bay, on the eastern tip of Papua New Guinea comprising Wabola and Bolaluna Islands. Traditional canoe building is a specialty of the Laughlan islanders and in this very remote corner of eastern Papua New Guinea, you will find seagoing canoes in various stages of construction. Stroll through the village of Bodaluna, with palm-thatched housesand learn the islanders' subsistence gardening, fishing and participation in the Kula Ring of trading. Enjoy an afternoon snorkel off a pristine sandbar or an adventurous dive off the outer reef, where you may see turtles, groupers, wrasses and spinner dolphins.
