Lissenung Island Resort


Lissenung Island Resort, a 20 minute boat ride from Kavieng in New Ireland Province, is the ideal base for a Papua New Guinea diving adventure. Situated only two degrees south of the equator, this is the South Sea, where the water is always warm, averaging a balmy 82-86°F.

The Resort is located on a small private island with coconut palms and a beautiful white sandy beach. Think of your own Pacific hideaway with all the necessities provided for an enjoyable stay: Simple bungalows with airy verandahs and mosquito screened bedrooms, great meals and, of course, fantastic diving!

If you are dreaming of a beautiful Pacific island, where you can relax and dive, and feel that you are alone on the planet, Lissenung is the ideal place for such a dream.
