Tau Yado Homestay’s wide, sandy beach is calm and perfect for children. The beach provides easy access to the water. As you move away from the beach, isolated coral outcrops eventually unite to form the reef proper. Be sure to bring your snorkelling gear, and be aware of tidal currents if you venture as far out as the dropoff.

At low tide long beachwalks are possible. Cockatoos, parrots and ground dwelling mound building birds known locally as maleo can also be seen nearby.

Your hosts can organise snorkelling and sightseeing tours to anywhere you want to go. Given the number of other homestays and dive centers that share the beach, it’s usually easy to find others to share excursion costs with.


Diving is by arrangement with Papuani’s neighbour Tarzan Diving.
