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.
Tawali is located in a secluded area of Milne Bay amongst local fishing villages and accessible only by boat. Built on a limestone bluff eighty feet above the water, Tawali offers guests a private retreat in which to enjoy the wonders of PNG.
Tawali was constructed by local craftsmen and you will find beautifully carved totems and woodwork in the spacious main lodge and throughout the resort.
Some of these works of art took two years to complete and are unique to the Milne Bay culture. Covered walkways connect guest bungalows, which are complete with private balconies overlooking Hoia Bay.
Bungalows: The air-conditioned bungalows are spacious with two queen beds and rosewood interiors that include desks, closets and lounge areas. Each room has a personal safe and coffee making facilities. Bathrooms are modern, completely tiled and have solar heated water.
Tranquility: Tucked away, only accessible by boat, sits what may be Papua New Guinea’s best kept scuba diving secret – Tawali Resort.
Diving Activities: At the southeastern tip of the main island of New Guinea lies the province of Milne Bay and what many consider to be some of the best all-around scuba diving in Papua New Guinea (check our divers packages here). T
he diversity, abundance and quality of the dive sites in the area is really quite amazing and encompasses everything from the famous muck diving sites at Lawadi and Observation Point, to renowned Manta Cleaning Station “Giant at Home” near Samarai Island.
Sprinkle in to this mix some of the many WWII wrecks in the area, such as the Black Jack B17F Flying Fortress bomber just off the beach at Cape Vogel, and some of the superb reefs, and it’s easy to understand Milne Bay is on the “must do” list for most divers.
Tawali is in a great location both physically and geographically, with pristine surroundings and its position on the north coast, which provides shelter from the prevailing SE winds most of the time. This means there is always access to the dive sites all year round, with exception of February when the predominant winds create fairly big seas that make it very difficult to manage the boats.
The visibility at most of the dive sites becomes optimal during the wet season, from June through to August, and remains good to excellent all the way through to late October. water temperatures vary from around 30 degrees Celsius in the summer down to about 25 degrees Celsius in the winter.
