Brilliant! I frequently found myself reflecting during our travels that I should of been here 20-40 years ago. Tetepare was the exception. A bit of effort to get to and from, i regret we only stayed 3 days, we should of stayed at least 5. Coral gardens is the best hard coral snorkel I have ever done. The lagoon is safe and not very deep so the kids had a great time. Plenty of Hawksbill turtles, the kids loved swimming with the reef sharks, the dolphins and their acrobatics were awesome. Staff and food were all good, facilities are much more advanced than the website depicts. I want to return in a few years to do some bush walks and see the dugong's .

It is well worth the effort getting to Tetepare, one of the most remarkable places we've been fortunate to visit. The ecolodge is very comfortable, with basic leaf huts set back from the cliff overlooking the ocean with great sea breezes. The food is fantastic, best we had in the Solomons by far. Our highlight was definitely the huge coral garden, about a 20 minute boat ride from the lodge, hands down the best snorkelling we've ever done. We ended up only having 2 nights on the island but I'd recommend at least four nights (a week is better :-). We originally booked for 3 nights and the lodge arranged our boat transport from Kolombangara. Unfortunately our arrival was delayed 24h because the drivers forgot to pick us up :-(. It was a little frustrating but the response from the lodge was very good, they arranged accommodation in Munda for one night and refunded us one night accomodation plus part of our boat transfer fee. TIPS: We arranged the entire trip via the Tetepare website. We pre-paid in full in advance via international bank transfer which, though unsecured, was received quickly with good communication and we had no issues. On our departure, we took the boat to Seghe, crossing the Blanche Channel. This boat ride was genuinely rough. Please note Tetepare is a very remote island: I strongly recommend bringing a PLB/EPIRB and, even better, a satellite phone. The lodge provides life jackets. I don't know that we'd take that boat ride again, better to return to Munda where the waterways are less open.

For adventurous travelers looking for an immersive nature experience, Tetepare is top notch. You arrive via a 2 hour banana boat ride from Munda, which is such a cool experience. The quiet leaf houses with porches for reading were incredibly relaxing. The food is delicious and you'll never be left hungry since they make so much of it. I snorkelled their pristine reefs many times and saw stunning eagle rays, 2 species of turtle, and heaps of reef sharks. It was inspiring to see how committed the rangers are to the preservation of the island, and it was incredible how much wildlife can be seen on such a small island. Check out the monitor lizards and coconut crabs in particular. Bring a bunch of books and unplug!

Wonderful stay in paradise. We spent three nights on the island with our 2 year old daughter. The transfer was rough (due to a storm) but once on the island Tumi and Mary took wonderful care of us - turtle tagging, coconut crab spotting and amazing snorkelling with eagle rays. The hike over the ridge to crocodile lake can be very much recommended.

What an amazing experience. Stepping out off our busy lives and taking time to live. So glad we had a long stay (ten days) to soak up the relaxed, timeless, culture. Plenty of diverse activities for us and our girls ( 11 & 16) to enjoy. Superb snorkelling , rainforest walks , flowering orchids, towering strangler figs, cultural tours, village visits and spectacular freshwater gorges. Helping the locals with monitoring of coconut crabs, sea grass and turtles brought lots of learning and lots of laughs. New wildlife experienced everyday. Perfect blend of comfort and adventure . Food and accomodation above expectations for such a pristine environment. The fisherman in our group revelled in the opportunity to help catch fresh fish to add to the evening meal. Many delicious meals. Local people involved every step of the way to guide, cook, mentor and entertain . Very warm and welcoming . Left us all longing to return.
