Tawali 2017

Papua New Guinea – Milne Bay
Tawali Resort 30 September – 8 October 2017

Milne Bay Province takes in the land at the extreme eastern end of Papua New Guinea together with seven groups of islands; the Trobriand, Woodlark, Laughlan, Louisiade Archipelago, the Conflict Group, the Samarai Group and the D’Entrecasteaux Group. The names come from a variety of explorers from as early as 1660 when D’Entrecasteaux sailed through the area.

Over the years, Milne Bay Province has been visited by missionaries, miners, traders in pearls, scientists and Japanese and American warships. During the war Milne Bay became a huge naval base through which hundreds of thousands of servicemen passed.

Today thousands of tourists arrive to enjoy diving around the wreckage left behind from the war. There are 160 named islands and 500 cays and atolls scattered over 250,000 square kilometres of ocean. In many parts of Milne Bay, the reefs are characterised by dramatic drop-offs, clefts and overhangs.

Tawali is one of the more luxurious dive resorts in PNG. The resort itself is located in a small bay, with great views over the water. The new main building of the resort is located on the cliff’s edge and houses a dining room, lounge, bar, reception and office. Built from timber into the forest, the entire resort blends in perfectly with tropical surroundings. It features traditional exquisite carvings and other local artifacts.
Perched on the edge of the cliff is the big verandah with spectacular views out to the ocean. Looking straight down, you can observe the fish on one of the house reefs without even getting wet. Dolphins are frequent visitors, and even whales can be spotted from this beautiful setting during the whale season. In the evening, sit back, relax with a glass of wine from the bar and enjoy the sunset before dinner. The restaurant serves a lavish mix of local seafood, vegetables and real tropical fruits. T
