Wuvulu Island

Wuvulu Island information

Manus Province comprises a handful of very remote offshore islands, including Wuvulu Island, which was made famous by Jean-Michel Cousteau when he conducted several Project Ocean Search expeditions in the 1970s. Other islands worthy of note are Hermit and Ninigo, about 240km to the north-northeast of Wewak. Due to their far-flung location, these spots rarely see foreign visitors, bar a few divers on live-aboards (starting from Wewak).
