Even though Buka is small, it's full of fun
Buka island is the smaller of our two main islands and is located just north of Bougainville island. Buka and Bougainville islands are separated by a small passage 200m wide with extremely fast-flowing waters.
Buka is a relatively flat island, only 52 kilometres long and 18 kilometers at its widest point. While small, Buka island has a numerous must-visit places.
Buka Town is the hub of the island and the interim capital of Bougainville. Buka town has lots to offer, including restaurants, bars and a trip to Sohano island are all on the must-do list.
Located on the north-west tip of Buka island, Kessa beach is a great place to get away from it all. Relaxing on the beach under the shade of a coconut tree, is the perfect way to spend an afternoon…island style.
Just a short boat trip from Kessa Beach, Pororan island provides a slice of quiet heaven, well away from it all, perfect for a weekend excursion.
