84 miles from Honiara
Approximately 80 miles from Honiara, and 20 miles from the Russell Islands (Pavvuvu Is.), this extinct volcano (also known as Mary Island) is covered in jungle and uninhabited.
It’s popular with local dive boats who maintain mooring buoys and groundlines. The buoys are just under the surface, so take care when approaching. Anchor in 15 metres and throw a line onto a tree or use one of the ground lines. A great spot for fishing, snorkelling and diving. It’s billed as a great place to see barracuda, sharks and big bumphead parrot fish.
