Great dive, easy entry and exit. You have to pay the entry fee to access the beach though. I saw turtle having a munch while I was diving. The water is warm that you could dive with shirt and short, no need for a wetsuit.

Went diving there several times. WWII Japanese wrecks were close to shore and shallow. A great abundance of brightly coclred fish and corals made the dives unforgettabl

fantastic wrecks, they have changed over the years but still a great dive. These two wrecks were sunk on the same night in 1942 while trying to offload japanese troops and supplies. There is also a third wreck close to shore further up the beach and several other wrecks in deeper water, the best of these is the Azumasan maru... More

The two troop carrier wrecks at Bonegi are two of the best shore dives available in the Pacific and not to be missed if you are looking for some interesting wrecks. B1 and B2 are about 30 mins out of Honiara to the west and you will be charged a fee to enter the beach by the locals. The fee... More

Two of probably the best shore dives on offer anywhere on the planet. Both are entered at the same place, where a slightly excorbitant fee is extracted depending on the size of the car and whether you are diving. Turn right to a fabulous wreck dive from 10m just off the beach to 50m at the stern end. Tanks, artillery,... More

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
