Jais Aben resort Madang
Madang has it all, beautifully vibrant reefs and a diversity of WW II wrecks, including boats, planes, barges and submarines, some of them still in excellent condition.
Madang is situated halfway along the northern coastline of the mainland of Papua New Guinea.
Consisting of reef fringed lowlands backed by some of the most rugged mountains of New Guinea including scenic offshore volcanic islands. Madang province covers 27,970 square kilometres. The township of Madang is perched on a peninsula, looking out at a scattering of beautiful tropical islands dotted through Nagada harbour which stretches into the Bismark
Madang is a domestic flight from Port Morsbey and Jais Aben resort is about 20 min out of town. With a few more mod cons (pool, air con etc) than some of the other PNG locations it certainly suitable to a range of divers.
The diving is wreck and reef so if you are after a bit of variety this place could be an option for you.
The resort is quite spread out with newly renovated rooms along the water front. Jais Aben's pool or the "beach bar" are popular places for an evening sundown cocktail . Jais Aben's restaurant has a socialable open air setting and is famous in the area for its seafood dishes. There is very good swimming off the jetty and the small sandy beach next to the dive shop.
The fringing reef around the peninsula and the little island, 250 m across from Jais Aben are perfect Snorkeling areas. Trekking through the nearby mountains to hot springs and remote rainforest villages as well as local village tours can also be organised. Madang also is the starting place of many Sepik river cruises. You can get first hand experiences from the famous carving cultures along this river.
