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.

These two sites offer a great opportunity to snorkel (yes, snorkel, not dive) right off of the beach. The sunken ships protrude from the water and make a great experience for non-divers. The beach, however, is isolated, no life guards, no facilities to shower afterwards....More

It is the same beach. Bonegi 1 and II are the wrecks from ww2 off the beach. The beach is Bonegi Beach, I think the difference is about whether you dive on the wrecks. Divers will rate the diving off the beach, which is... More
