It is a nation remains largely uncanvassed and shrouded in mystery. It is not until visitors travel to this remote country that its natural beauty and cultural vibrancy come to life.
Especially with unique coral reef, and unusual fish species, the region's stunning underwater landscapes captive divers like me.
Then,we moved to Twari resort at Alotau facing to the Milne bay to pursue more clear water and rich coral and revisit also 3 consecutive years(2011 to 2013) we stayed at Twari resort.
In order to obtain such beautiful ocean gift, it requires some sacrifice to reach, the traffic. Once a week direct flight from Tokyo to Port Moresby is available, but connecting flight to Tufi is not ready on the day of arrival, we must hire charter for our self.
This is adventure flight with small air plane, landing on the sand beach. See this movie showing the landing.
It was like a dream, when we were in underwater world, breathless scenes and sites we see.
There are a lots of beautiful diving spot, each spot was given a name, such as, shark tip, veal's reef, honey moon reef, cyclone, etc. This time, they took us to try new nameless spot, on our last dive. It was nice reef, calm, quiet, and like coral flower garden,
and they gave us naming right this spot, we named 'Hiro's reef' which is from may name Hiroaki.
