I only know Tawali so far (last trip in March) and would go back anytime.
Lawadi is fantastic or macro, I have never seen such a beautifully lit divesite such as Deacon's reef and the reefs around are simply splendid with a cornucopia of pristine hard corals.
I'd probably book a short liveaboard on the Spirit of NewGuinea, ( Tawali's own liveaboard) in order to explore the outer reefs and Samarai area, additionally to dving the local reefs from Tawali resort.
Here are some UW photos I posted on this board (and more in my Flickr account, -click below- ) : http://wetpixel.com/...60247&hl=tawali
