The changing face of Ela Beach

The current generation will remember it as the place of weekend entertainment, the next generation will probably see it as a big recreational park. But for those before 80’s kids, Ela Beach means much more.

Christopher Tava (born late 80's) is one, who over the years, saw Port Moresby’s magnificent beachfront lose its natural beauty.

“Ela Beach is not as beautiful as it was back in the days when it was a turtle beach,” he posted on his Facebook account.
