Koki information

The picturesque stilt village of Koki, at the eastern end of Ela Beach, is worth visiting if you can find a local to take you. The best way to do that is by visiting the neighbouring Koki Market , one of the oldest and, after a vast improvement in security, safest markets in the city. Fresh produce and fish straight off the boat are sold here and even if you’re not shopping for produce it’s a colourful place to watch grassroots-style PNG commerce. It’s best not to go alone, and preferable to go with a local. PMVs (public motor vehicles) stop outside the market.
