Port Moresby and PNG Barrier Reef Dive Sites

 
Loloata Island Resort, always popular as an expatriates' weekend retreat, is a private haven away from the noise and bustle of Moresby! The resort is tucked away on a sandy spit at the northern end of private Loloata Island - the walk along the jetty to the resort allows you to gaze into calm shallow water where schools of goatfish search for food amongst sea grass beds.

Attractive bungalows set on stilts overlooking the water make this a beautiful and romantic destination. There is nothing quite like waking up in the morning to the gentle sound of waves lapping on a seashore, and the sight of black egrets fishing in the warm shallows! 6 new rooms have been built a 5 minute walk along the shoreline, each with air-conditioning and elevated views over mangroves to the coast line beyond. It is a wonderful place to watch the sun set, as the glowing hues are reflected on the mountainous escarpment of the Owen Stanley Ranges. The island has bush walks and a secluded beach on the far side and for the watersports enthusiast there are windsurfers and waterskis.

The hub of the resort is the bar & restaurant, the latter affording views across Bootless Bay and attractive sunsets on the distant hills around Moresby. Buffet style meals allow you to mingle with other guests and chat about the day’s events, or you can have a romantic dinner a deux if you so desire!

The diving in Port Moresby may come as a surprise to many! It is quite simply out of this world. Suzie's Bommie is surely one of the world's great dives, and for the aficionado of critters the wreck of the Pai offers pygmy seahorses and ghost pipefishes. End Bommie is without a doubt the best place in the world to see the rare and stunning rhinopias scorpionfish. Diving is done from fast and efficient day boats, with no more than 10 divers on any one dive site. Up to 3 day dives are offered, 2 in the morning with a return to the resort for lunch, and 1 in the afternoon. Night dives are also offered at nearby dive sites like Lion Island, a world class "muck dive".
