Manus Island (Great Admiralty Island) lies 2 degrees south of the Equator in Manus Province, in Papua New Guinea. It lies about 320 km to the N of PNG. Manus is the largest of 18 Admiralty Islands in the Bismarck Archipelago. Most are uninhabited atolls, forming PNG’s smallest province. Manus is rugged and heavily timbered, with central hills reaching over 700 m. The area is rich in marine life and beautiful coral reefs. A detention centre was built on Manus Island in 2001 as part of Australia's Pacific Solution for asylum seekers. Controversy has followed the centre, which will close though with no time scale.

During WWII Manus Island was occupied the Japanese, followed by the Americans and Australians, and there are still remains, albeit rusting, of the Allied base still visible today. It was the site of a large US naval base in 1944 at Seeadler Harbour. Copra, cocoa, coffee, and other products are now exported from there. Ask the locals to show you the Loniu Passage and Cave, and from the bridge over the passage, you will see numerous rusting WWII relics. Visit and enjoy a refreshing swim at the pleasant waterfall and freshwater pool on the Lorengau River, a few kilometres upstream from Lorengau Town, the capital of the province.

Experience diving and snorkelling to meet with a huge variety of corals and fish, and from January to March even whales, in water with excellent visibility. Take a boat and visit some of the excellent surfing beaches, such as Tulu, or enjoy some great fishing. Kayaking is also on offer. Enjoy the local eating places and the local market close to the wharf, and perhaps you will find some jewellery made from harvested shells of the Emerald green snail. American anthropologist Margaret Mead lived on Manus Island before and after the war, and gave detailed accounts in Growing up in New Guinea and New Lives for Old.
