We joined Tulagi Dive for a number of dives on both B1 and B2 and found them both to be quite interesting and enjoyable. We ended up going back to both sites and dived on them 2 more times. It's not far out of town and there is plenty to see on the road on the way there an back.

Honiara is very dusty and busy so it's lovely to head out to the west and experience the calm of some of the beaches. While some of the beaches are quite busy and have lots of rubbish, either Mbonege beach is a lovely place to relax and unwind, and it's awesome to snorkel over the sunken WW2 Japanese battleship.

A much underrated spot for a swim and snorkel. Sunday afternoon is awesome with the locals. Take your go pro and get in the water!

Love these two beaches! We always take our visitors to Mbonege II as the Japanese shipwreck that sticks out of the water is very easily accessible for snorkelers or divers. The visibility is generally pretty good, sometimes very clear and perfect! I always have to wear a stinger suit in the water here, the baby jelly fish seem to love... More

Mbonegi offers WW2 wrecks accessible form shoreline for both diving and snorkelling experience. Solomons is arguably best diving in the world as this is unspoilt. Mbonegi is easily accessible from Honiara by road and is a great day out. Pay local land owners $100 SBD to dive and the experience is all yours. Fantastic

Good place for an easy drive from Honiara. Not recommendable if rough sea but good if there is a nice day.

Mbonege beach is a half hour drive out of Honiara towards the west. It is a good weekend day trip getaway place with white sandy beaches. There are a few leaf huts and shady trees to keep the sun away. Good diving sites too and one can see the sunken World War Japanese boats. Great place to swim in the... More

Two wrecks straight off the beach. A little way apart - easiest to drive from one to the other, or it would be quite a trek. Bonegi 1 is a "real wreck", goes deep, still quite intact. Vis a bit murky, but they had just had an unseasonable cyclone. Bonegi 2 sticks out of the water, quite broken up, but... More
