Pretty broken up while we were hoping for more definition. Still, good diving and great, easy-entry position.

Regardless if you scuba or snorkel, there's heaps to see here. Short trip out from the city, I hired gear through Tulagi Diving. The beach itself is quite nice and if diving isn't your thing you can easily just swim at the beach. The two wrecks that are there are amazing. You can do a deep dive in excess of... More

close to town,very clean, make sure you go in the morning as the afternoon gets windy. there is a charge to use the beach as there is for all the beaches around Honiara. The money goes to the land owners and for this you get clean beaches.

Our cruise ship had a 4 hour snorkelling tour to this beach in the afternoon. There was quite a current and waves breaking over the shipwreck. Most of the people were too scared to get in. Many were really disappointed with their tour We were in a cab so we had a quick swim and moved on. Its a lovely... More

Best place ever if you're new to snorkling - the wreck at Bonegi beach just west of Honiara was a WW2 Japanese transport that was shelled by Allied forces. To try and save her, the captain ran her up on Bonegi beach. The bow sits at the high-tide line and the hull slopes off downwards to a point wher SCUBA... More

Nice beach not too far from town A tip for visitors: Go on the weekend when there are lots of local families there as you will enjoy their company probably more than the swim, though the wreck is pretty unique

I spend a lot of time in the Solomon Islands and on most visits manage a dive at Bonegi I and II. Both sites are beach dives with the wrecks within easy reach of the shore and the park area where you enter the property is about 20 minutes out of Honiara. Bonegi II is a few hundred meters from...

Bonegi has to be one of the most unique beaches in the world. Not only does it have that palm tree lined pacific beach look but it is also bathed in history with old ww2 ships visible from both the beach and underwater. I learned to dive on this beach and it truely was one of the best travel experiences... More

Bonegi has to be the best diving in the world. You can walk straight from the beach and you are at the start of a dive wreck. Tak local money as you have to pay the locals to be allowed onto the beach.

We've dived these wrecks several times and they are always good fun. As they are shore dives, they start off nice and shallow and the drop away down the reef, so you can basically spend as much time as you like in the sunny shallows with all the animals, or drop down deep to almost 40 meters at the stern....
