Main port photo for Conflict Islands, Papua New Guinea

The word conflict may conjure up images of struggle and discontent, but this group of 21 islands encircling an enormous lagoon on the rim of a sunken volcano is an undiscovered Shangri-La. Named after their discovery in 1886 by HMS naval survey ship The Conflict, the islands were purchased by Australian businessman Ian Gowrie-Smith in 2003 whose goal is to preserve and protect this pristine ecosystem. Sheltered by an untouched reef system, the island is abundant with marine life and perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. Whether you prefer activities fast and furious or slow and steady, you're sure to find paradise. What more could you wish for in an island destination?
