For an authentic Papua New Guinea experience, make sure you look further than just Erave and explore the cultural and scenic treasures the region offers. Mendi, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the southeast, and Kar, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southeast of Erave are also waiting to be discovered.
Visit Papua New Guinea's craft workshops. These are great destinations to spend time, especially on overcast or inclement days.
Get some down time upon the water by going sailing or snorkeling.
Be sure to take your tastebuds for a tour of Papua New Guinea's restaurants and cafés. Cooks in this region frequently include breadfruit (ulu) and coconuts in their meals. Favorite specialties include chicken pot and kokoda fish, but of course there are many more tasty dishes to sample. Papua New Guinea dishes such as saksak (dumplings made with sugar and sago) are also a good thing to try.
The 16th of September is the date when many people in Papua New Guinea celebrate Independence Day, so be prepared for special events and festivities if you're lucky enough to be staying in Erave then.
Your time in Erave will reward you with breathtaking photos and wondrous memories that will last a lifetime.
