About Daugo Island, Papua New Guinea
Daugo Island is a small island off the south coast of Papua New Guinea, and was once a World War Two airfield. This spot is absolutely awesome, and because it is only 4.5km wide and 2km long, you can easily access the right beaches, depending on the wind direction.
To reach the island requires a 20- to 30-minute boat ride from Port Moresby. Once there you’ll find shallow and flat-water conditions, protected by reefs and spits of land. Further out to sea, some little reef breaks produce fun waves to play about on.
The season runs from May to November, with a predominantly southeasterly wind direction.
