On the southern shore of Milne Bay, this tiny settlement in a cove often called Discovery Bay sits below the steeply rising mountains of the southern peninsula. It’s a good destination for snorkelling, who swim around the mostly submerged Muscoota, a WWII coal transport ship that sprang a leak and sank here in 1946.
There's a good, fairly demanding hike to a waterfall from Ulumani Treetops Lodge (three hours round trip), with steep ups and downs. During the rainy season, it's possible to swim in the waterfall. Warren Dipole from Ulumani Treetops Lodge can arrange guides as well as canoe trips up Dawadawa River, as well as the crack-of-dawn birdwatching walks to spot the elusive birds of paradise. Warren also lends out snorkelling masks.
