Doini Island

Papua New Guinea

Doini Island


This all-but-lost tropical paradise is privately owned and with just a handful of locals, a small resort and an airstrip, this place truly deserves 'deserted island' status.

Doini Island is made up of 1000 hectares of incredible landscape; most of it unchartered territory just waiting to be explored. Beautiful white beaches line its shores and the photo opportunities are once-in-a-lifetime.

And despite being one of Papua New Guinea's few private islands, it's virtually untouched, so make sure to adjust your watch to island time and enjoy the serenity!
