Idler's Beach, Port Moresby

2.9
#7 of 7 in Parks in Port Moresby
When you are tired of trekking through rainforest, relax and rest your feet at Idler's Beach. This sandy shore has shallow waters but little in way of facilities. Take an umbrella and lounge chair for shade and comfort as well as your own drinking water. While the area's feeling toward outsiders has improved in recent years, many are still skeptical, making the area not completely safe. Visit with a local escort to help you through the security checkpoints. Also avoid arriving on Sunday mornings when locals are in church and access is difficult. A visit to Idler's Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Port Moresby day trip site to plot your vacation.
