Loloata offers the unique qualities of convenience and natural beauty. The resort island is only 15 minutes from the international airport in Port Moresby, but you'll feel like you're a world away on this beautiful Melanesian garden isle.

Loloata and its surrounding reefs and islands are the perfect nature study and are regularly visited by botanists, marine biologists and others with a special interest in our flora, fauna and rarer marine species.

Needless to say, in such an aquatic wonderland, there is a world of discovery for snorkeling and scuba diving enthusiasts. Local divers, island guests and our scuba schools enjoy escorted trips to nearby reefs and Lion Island, which is famous for its many species or hard corals.

And for the initiated, Loloata's world class scuba services offer adventurous wreck dives throughout Bootless Bay, night dives and superb diving excursions to nearby Horshoe Reef Marine Park.
