New Hanover Island, as known as Lavongai Island, is a large volcanic island in the western region of the New Ireland Province in Papua New Guinea.
Flying into Kavieng, it is just a boat trip away. Located a few hours from town, you'll be totally absorbed in the raw natural surroundings. New Hanover is a true wild island, complete with rivers, waterfalls, mountains and an impenetrable rainforest.
If you're looking for uncrowded waves and a total emersion in Papua New Guinean culture then New Hanover is the place for you.
