Resort Highlights

  • The shallow reef diving here is perfect for photographers and beginners wanting to observe fish in calm and clear conditions
  • From your room, you'll have direct access to the volcanic beach and PADI dive center so getting into the water is always quick and stress-free
  • Between dives, you can cool off in the lagoon pool or explore inland with one of the many fascinating land tours on offer
  • The snorkeling here is just as incredible as the diving. There's even a plane wreck that can be explored by non-divers, sitting at just 3 m depth!

Resort Description

Kokopo Beach Bungalow Resort is nestled along the coastline of Blanche Bay, with sweeping views of the unspoiled Duke of York Islands and mighty volcanoes.

These authentic beach bungalows are dotted around the lagoon pool, amid tropical gardens. There's a bar and restaurant on site and you'll have direct access to a private volcanic beach. There are dolphins everywhere in the bay! 

The PADI dive center is right on the beachfront, offering shallow reef diving for photographers and beginners, as well as a high chance of spotting sharks and turtles cruising around.

Land tours can be booked to explore old Japanese barge tunnels, get up close and personal with the active and smoking volcano, and contemplate the devastation which now characterizes the town of Rabaul.
