Tucked away, only accessible by boat, sits what may be Papua New Guinea's best kept scuba diving secret - Tawali Resort. Welcome to the exotic culture of Papua New Guinea (PNG) and to Tawali Resort. Located on a volcanic bluff overlooking the clear protected waters of Milne Bay, Tawali offers travelers a unique location to dive, relax and enjoy the unspoiled wonders of this magnificent part of the world.
The diving off Tawali is renowned for its steep drop-offs, exhilarating drift dives, brightly coloured coral gardens and pelagic action including sharks and rays! The house reef out the front of the resort is another site raved about, easily accessible where you will find marine life including the sought after mandarin fish. Swim out a little further and find schooling pelagics, rays and more. Be sure to book enough nights so that you donÃ¢€â„¢t miss out on any sites! As well as this, you can expect some fantastic macro diving. Find sandy bottoms alive with rhinopias, pygmy seahorses, mimic octopus and a myriad of small critters. A small sample of the dive sites below:
A steep wall that drops down to over 200 metres that is habitually visited by a multitude of pelagics. See hammerhead sharks, manta rays, whale sharks, minke whales and on two occasions, orcas! After a while, adjust your vision and look up close at the variety of macro life and anemones along the wall, hiding amongst the brightly coloured corals and elephant ear sponges.
An incredible drift dive on which you will find yourself floating along a slanted reef through large gorgonian fans, and long grass corals alongside schooling fish and incredible macro life.
