Welcome to Karkar Island


A road encircles the island and takes four hours to drive around. You can also walk around, but treat the river crossings with caution. When it rains on the mountain, water comes down these rivers like a wall. Karkar is encircled by a reef and has good beaches and snorkelling, although you’ll need to bring your own equipment.

The high school and the airstrip are at the government station at Kinim.
