Two fantastic World War II wrecks, suitable for advanced open water divers. Parts of the bow of the Bonegi II are visible from the surface and suitable for snorkelling. The downside of diving in the SI is the price - expect to pay upwards of...More

Visited with Tulagi Dive based at the Honiara Yacht club , Its about 45 minutes outside of Honiara. Well worth a visit - easy shore dives with not too much of a swim out. Good interesting wrecks

Scuba diving or snorkelling at Bonegi is a must if you're staying in Honiara. The wrecks are very accessible from the beach with Bonegi 1 partly out of the water creating a great snorkelling experience with plenty of fish and coral.

Great diving around a sunken Japanese transport ships from WWII, its only a stone's throw away from the beach which makes it easily accessible. For picnic lovers, its a must visit beach.

Went on a shore dive. Very few divers. Calm, bath-tub-warm water with exceptional visibility and robust invertebrate life. Please please be careful with your stuff--you MUST have a designated person on shore to guard against theft--and even then, people can get distracted. I'm sure it...More

Great tropical sandy beach with calm water. Plenty of space for a picnic and easy access from town. Diving and snorkeling options around the shipwreck just off the beach, but also lovely clear water for swimming too.

It is the same beach. Bonegi 1 and II are the wrecks from ww2 off the beach. The beach is Bonegi Beach, I think the difference is about whether you dive on the wrecks. Divers will rate the diving off the beach, which is... More
