Vanimo Overview

Vanimo, the capital of Sandaun province is dominated by a Malaysian logging company. In the west of the town, towards Yako village is some good surfing (September to March, the best accommodation for that might be the Vanimo Surf Lodge, recently eco friendly built on Lido peninsula, halfway towards Yako, cheaper places for surfing further west).
Getting there is not easy, if coming from Indonesia you have to hire a car to get to the border, but no vehicle is allowed to cross the border (January 2017), from the border to Vanimo are frequent busses. Otherwise from Port Moresby you have quite expensive planes via Wewak.
