Papua New Guinea

Mysterious tribal ritual

With pristine white sand beaches, World War II history, lush flora and exotic animals – you must be in Papua New Guinea.

Clear waters teem with bright topical fish, idyllic beaches beckon, delicious local fruits are waiting to be picked and that’s just a taste of PNG. With a huge amount of shore tours and eight different ports of call, there are almost too many experiences to discover. Visit beautiful remote beaches, paddle a traditional canoe, witness fascinating rituals and shop for local handicrafts. The opportunities for adventure seems endless. Our pick of Papua New Guinea? That would have to be the Trobriand Islands, P&O pioneered ports still as untouched as when we first found them.
