Marovo La­goon

“The Marovo La­goon is a dou­ble bar­rier reef en­closed la­goon, which in prac­tise means a chain of coral reefs and is­lands that en­cir­cle the big Van­gunu Is­land... large parts of the Marovo La­goon are nearly as un­touched as in 1946 when Amer­i­can Au­thor James A. Mich­ener in his Pulitzer Prize win­ning book Tales from the South Pa­cific de­scribed it as the eighth won­der of the world.”

Ho­niara Cen­tral Mar­ket

“While Ho­niara won't be mis­taken for La­gos, the coun­try’s bub­bling prin­ci­pal food mar­ket cov­ers a whole block be­tween Men­dana Ave and the seafront. It has a huge se­lec­tion of fresh pro­duce, es­pe­cially fruits and veg­eta­bles that come from out­ly­ing vil­lages along the north­ern coast and from Savo Is­land.”

Bonegi

“About 12km west from Ho­niara, Bonegi is mu­sic to the ears of divers, snorkel­ers and sun­bathers. Two large Ja­pa­nese freighters sank just off­shore on the night of 13 Novem­ber, 1942, and make for a mag­nif­i­cent play­ground for scuba divers, who call them Bonegi I and Bonegi II. As the up­per works of Bonegi II break the sur­face, it can also be snorkelled. There’s also a black-sand beach that is suit­able for a pic­nic.” - Lonely Planet
