Mbonege Beach, Honiara

2.6
#4 of 8 in Parks in Solomon Islands
Get away from it all at the well-kept and secluded Mbonege Beach, home to a pair of Japanese World War II shipwrecks known as Bonegi I and II. Once you've had enough of sunbathing, the naval relics make for an exciting snorkel or scuba expedition that even the most inexperienced diver can tackle. Picnic on the pebbled sands, scour the waves for tropical fish, and lounge under the palms trees with a good book--but leave valuables back at the ranch and look out for falling coconuts! For travelers who use our international travel planner, Honiara holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mbonege Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
