Paradise - - Traveller -

Mir­ror Pond, Rus­sell Is­lands The Solomon Is­lands is best known for its many World War 2 wrecks of ev­ery­thing from planes to sub­marines and ships. Many lie at the un­fath­omable depths of Iron Bot­tom Sound (named for the amount of me­tal down there), while many more are scat­tered around the fring­ing reefs and shal­low la­goons, all of which pro­vide ex­cep­tional, and easy div­ing.

Mir­ror Pond, how­ever, is not a wreck site. It is a sub-aquatic pas­sage that ends in a cham­ber where you can sur­face in an ocean-wa­ter pool sur­rounded by over-hang­ing jungle.
