Nissan Island Vacations
The Nissan Island area is home to many population centers, each one with its own special qualities. Malekolon, 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the southeast, and Buka Island, 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the northwest of Nissan Island are good spots to check out if you have the time.
Every destination contains a specific history and Papua New Guinea has its own fair share of stories to tell. The war relics and monuments here are particularly interesting.
The area around Nissan Island offers plenty of activities for active travelers with a love of watersports. Freediving and surfing are some of the popular water-based activities here.
Often, the most rewarding travel moments are to be found in a region's restaurants and cafés. Breadfruit (ulu) and also coconuts are commonly used ingredients in this part of the world. Chicken pot and kokoda fish are just two interesting regional treats worth trying. Saksak (dumplings made with sugar and sago) is a good way to round out any Papua New Guinea meal.
At the end of your stay in Nissan Island, don't be surprised if you find yourself making plans to revisit this beautiful vacation spot.
