Madang is a scenic town set within a beautiful harbour on the north coast of PNG's mainland. It is a popular diving area with good tourist facilities.
The area is a well established dive base. There are a couple of local dive operators based in resorts in & around Madang who make trips to the sites within reach of the mainland. Liveaboards based in Madang make trips further afield.
Madang has an airport and is a 60 minute flight from Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea to the south. Air Ninguini has flights twice a day.
There are a few accommodation options, both within the town itself and dotted around the area. If you are looking to dive locally, rather than with a Liveaboard, Jais Aben Resort & Madang Resort are the only resorts with dive centres.
Madang has a good variety of shops & restaurants, an interesting craft market and good tourist facilities. There is also an excellent golf course nearby. For those looking to really explore the area, there are plenty of sight-seeing tours on offer, or you could hire a car and check out the local attractions for yourself. It is also possible to arrange trekking.
