Scuba diving or snorkelling at Bonegi is a must if you're staying in Honiara. The wrecks are very accessible from the beach with Bonegi 1 partly out of the water creating a great snorkelling experience with plenty of fish and coral.

Great diving around a sunken Japanese transport ships from WWII, its only a stone's throw away from the beach which makes it easily accessible. For picnic lovers, its a must visit beach.

Per all the other comments there was a sunk ship that was visible and another one that was not. Entrance was 20SD for a single person. There was no one there except another couple and some guy came to snorkel. The owner could do a but and set up a bathroom or shower facility but that does not exist. U... More

Went on a shore dive. Very few divers. Calm, bath-tub-warm water with exceptional visibility and robust invertebrate life. Please please be careful with your stuff--you MUST have a designated person on shore to guard against theft--and even then, people can get distracted. I'm sure it goes without saying -but I'm exceptionally glad that the small bag that was stolen contained... More

Great tropical sandy beach with calm water. Plenty of space for a picnic and easy access from town. Diving and snorkeling options around the shipwreck just off the beach, but also lovely clear water for swimming too.

I did 4 dives on the Bonegis with Tulagi Dive. The visibility is great, the corals healthy and the fish plentiful. Any diver could spend an entire day just watching a few square centimeters of the huge wreck and still see something interesting. Definitely recommend!

B1 and B2 are great for snorkelling and diving. Definitely worth doing in Honiara. Snorkelling the wreck you see hundreds of fish and good coral too.
