YUO ISLAND – IDYLIC ISLAND RETREAT (FA 04)
We highly recommend that after returning from your Sepik River adventure, to take one or two (or more…) days spent over on pretty YUO ISLAND – a 50-minute boat crossing from Wewak town. The tranquil island guesthouse is situated in a small, picturesque bay, on a white sandy beach. It even has a simple flush toilet and running shower, (which are luxury after the river villages!).
Very friendly Robert and Catherine along with their delightful family offer a warm welcome to all visitors while cooking and serving delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They will look after your every need whilst you simply relax at the water’s edge in hammocks, snorkel in the blue, pristine shallow coral filled waters or explore this small island.
This is the perfect way to ease back into the world after your remote river experience.
We will pre-arrange your visit to Yuo Island for you. Costs to be paid in cash to Robert at the time of the visit, as follows:-
Wewak town to Yuo Island with motorboat transfer – K150 (US$45) each way per couple. The boat can carry up to 6 persons so if the boat is full the price per person is suitably reduced.
Beach Guest House accommodation with 3 meals/day– K115 (US$35) per person, per night.
Additional costs are for fishing and or visiting other islands (fuel) start at K150 (US45) per person.
We strongly recommend that all visitors obtain their own travel insurance to cover forced cancellation of the tour due to unexpected circumstances, eg., bad weather conditions causing stoppage of flights, loss of baggage or personal items, medical emergency, and forced changes to your itinerary due to reasons beyond our control or planning.
