for very small islands, and there were several tiny islands we went to, in Papua New Guinea's Louisiade Archipelago, which were barely indicated on the map (by a tiny dot) or not at all. I think I'd almost need a detailed atlas for getting those on a map.
I am not sure that such an atlas even exists.
I was on a National Geographic expedition to the region (its first to these specific islands) and even the maps in the ship library had very little detail, although the islands were shown.
I think that for most purposes, this map would be just fine. I like the way it groups islands together according to which nation they belong to, by using a line border around nation-groups. This map makes the region more easy to understand politically.
It's big - the area - so the map by definition cannot be too small-scaled. But if you only want to carry one map - this is it.
The map seems to do this quite well
