Doini Island Skull Cave on Papua New Guinea island offers a look into the country's interesting past but features a lot more than that as well. The cave itself requires long uphill climb to see about 25 skulls of deceased village leaders lined up on a ledge, placed there as a sign of respect. When you are finished looking, head back down to the beach to enjoy spectacular snorkeling in the clear water among lots of tropical fish. The beaches provide convenient facilities like toilets, a bar, and souvenir shops. To visit Doini Island Skull Cave on your trip to Doini Island, use our Doini Island trip itinerary builder website.
