Remote Tawali Resort snorkel and skull cave


Welcome to the exotic culture of PNG! Tucked away sits what may be Papua New Guinea's best kept secret, Tawali Resort. Take a coach journey (approx. 90 mins) to a volcanic bluff overlooking the clear protected waters of Milne Bay. Tawali offers travellers a unique location to snorkel, relax and enjoy the unspoiled wonders of this magnificent part of the world. Learn what it really means to step back in time where the worries of the world fade and the magic of nature unfolds. As you step back in time and explore what could be conceived as the darker side to the history of Milne Bay, your time at the resort starts with a Skull Cave Tour. A short dinghy ride from Tawali Resort and a 15 minute walk along the magical shore line of the local village and you will find yourself at a series of limestone caves. Walk down into the caves and into the footsteps of the villagers’ ancestors. Then, return to the resort for a light lunch before the afternoon snorkelling begins. After lunch take a short 5 minute boat ride from the resort to embark on a guided snorkel tour at the Sponge Haven site. This site has a sheer wall plunging from a shelf 3 feet below the surface to a depth of 350 feet plus! The wall is honey combed with small caves and hosts a variety of sponges and other marine life. Return to the resort where you have free time to take a dip in the pool, sit out on the Deck and take in the beautiful view or swim and snorkel from the beach at the resort.
