    Madang is the capital of Madang Province and a port on the north coast of Papua New Guinea. It was settled by Germans in the 19th C, then under Australian administration from 1919, and occupied by Japanese 1942-1944 when the town was virtually wiped out. Today its population of 24,000 includes many expatriates, and the city is the base for many NGOs and business branches. The town is said to be one of the prettiest towns in the South Pacific, due in part to its dramatic location on the tip of a peninsula encircled by mountains to 4000m.

Kei Kecil (Small Kei) has beautiful beaches, but the best known is Pasir Panjang (Long Beach) consisting of three kilometres of white sand as fine as flour, framed by coconut palms and a sea in shades of green and turquoise.
