The 30m-high Coastwatchers Memorial Beacon, visible 25km out to sea, is a reminder of those who stayed behind enemy lines during WWII to report on Japanese troop and ship movements. It’s a rather ugly concrete memorial, but the 3km beachfront road south of the memorial is the most pleasant walk in Madang, with views across Astrolabe Bay.
