Found off of the East coast of Papua New Guinea, New Britain Island is filled with a fascinating history and stunning views. Captured by the Japanese during World War Two there are many fascinating ruins, wrecks and caves to visit on this magnificent, wild island.
New Britain is vast, relatively untouched and home to nearly 500,000 inhabitants although there are still many parts that you can explore where the influence of people doesn’t exist. There are two main towns located on the island, Rabaul in the east and Kimbe in the west, where most of the accommodation and diving centres are placed. If it is the aforementioned diving that you’re interested in, then Kimbe may well just be the city of your dreams. Home to one of the most remarkable coral reefs in the entire Pacific, there is a great deal to see here whether snorkelling or diving due to the abundance of sea life and there are also a great number of WWII wrecks to see such as a sunken tank and plane. If you prefer to stay above water then there are numerous paths and volcanic peaks to trek along.
