Tawali Dive Resort

Tawali Dive Resort is nestled in a secluded area of Milne Bay amongst local fishing villages. The private retreat sits on a limestone bluff surrounded by tropical vegetation, overlooking the fringing reefs and deep blue, calm water of Hoia Bay.

Tawali was constructed by local craftsmen and you will find beautifully carved totems and woodwork in the spacious main lodge and throughout the resort. Covered walkways connect the main lodge and observation deck to the beautifully appointed guest bungalows.

There are no roads to Tawali. The resort is accessed via a 90 minute scenic drive from Gurney Airport along the Milne Bay coast and rainforest, followed by a short 15 minute boat ride from the marina over to the resort.

Tawali offers both divers and non divers a unique location to dive, relax and enjoy the unspoiled wonders of this magnificent part of the world.
