Lido is a large village on the north-western coast of Papua New Guinea, close to Vanimo, and approximately 45 minutes drive from the border with Indonesia. The village forms a stereotypical tropical village, including coconut trees and grass-roofed huts.

From October to February there is a reasonable surf, and despite its isolation, surfing travellers are slowly becoming aware of its potential.[1] Locals claim their ancestors invented surfing using body boards.
