Departing wharf-side, take a 10-minute transfer along roads fringed by tropical trees and palms before arriving at the forest. Here you can enjoy a guided walk through native flora to explore all the different plant species. Some of these plants are said to have the healing touch and your informative guide will reveal how the Melanesian locals use different plants for medicinal purposes.

A step inside the unearthly Secret Grotto reveals fascinating formations of stalagmites and stalactites, which can be seen by torchlight. Your tour concludes with a demonstration of traditional hunting techniques, an explanation of the traditional methods of hunting wild pigs and the art of hunting coconut crabs.
