There are several single and double kayaks to explore nearby islands, a perfect way to get around the caIrn waters. Later you may progress to the traditional outrigger canoe, as the locals make it look easy. Your attempt should be good for a laugh!

Alternatively the 5m catamaran looks like a fun way to get across to Kavieng for a picnic.

Nearby Big Nusa Island has various WWII relics to investigate. The boys from the local village are happy to guide you along the volcanic coastline for a nominal fee. The Retreat dogs may even accompany you, as they are always keen for a walk.

Also on offer are day trips to dive and snorkelling sites throughout the area. The clear warm waters, diversity of marine life and variety of wrecks and reefs to choose from promise for spectacular viewing. The dive team's local and overseas knowledge ensure your underwater experience is unforgettable.

The local waters teem with Spanish mackerel, trevally, barracuda, marlin, tuna, red emperor and many other succulent fish. Fishing trips can be arranged, or alternatively enjoy the hauls of others at the evening buffet in the restaurant, typically featuring the local delicious seafood.

Families enjoy the safe swimming area immediately in front of the Retreat. This can be followed by a game of table tennis, the board games and music in the restaurant, which is open-sided, sandy and a perfect place to enjoy the shade.

The surf season is November to April. Because of the
consistent swells generated during these months, many choose the Retreat for a holiday dedicated to surfing, taking the opportunity to ride world-class waves without crowds.

Local knowledge and speedboats ensure access to the best breaks each day.

Over the following few days you realise another highlight of Nusa Island Retreat -. the local people.

Friendly and helpful, they delight in conversing with guests, even if one's Tok Pisin is rudimentary. Many can give you insights to village life and local traditions.

It is only after you have exhausted the many activities of Nusa Island Retreat that you look further into its involvement in the local arena. Dedicated to developing a harmonious community environment, Nick and the team have instigated many projects to ensure the Retreat and nearby villages develop in a sustainable, ecological manner.

AusAID, guests and Australian schools have assisted with past funding, and further projects are proposed, including building a school, fencing for chickens to ensure access to eggs, and improving community access to fresh water. Already, compost toilets have been installed at the Retreat and across the island, protecting precious ground water.

The Retreat operates a boat to transport children to school in Kavieng, which has resulted in a 45 per cent increase in the number of children attending school. Several bomb craters on the island have been filled to discourage breeding of malarial mosquitoes, and women sew mosquito nets to protect young children. Use of compost bins at the Retreat has demonstrated the benefits of permaculture, enabling locals to increase the yield of fruit and vegetables, both for consumption and for sale.

It is this environmentally aware approaeh that sets Nusa Island Retreat apart from many other resorts throughout the world. Developing in conjunction with the natural environment and its inhabitants is often a small consideration in the development of a business, and the team at the Retreat must be commended.
Consider Nusa Island Retreat for your next holiday. It promises to be memorable!
