375 miles from Honiara
The town, Lata, is located on the northern side of Nendo, the largest of the islands in the Santa Cruz group.
For clearing formalities, Lata has Customs and Quarantine, but you’ll have to do Immigration in Honiara on Guadalcanal. Once formalities are complete in Lata, report to the police, who should notify Immigration in Honiara that you’ll be heading their way.
For cruisers coming from Vanuatu, Nendo is a necessary stop if you want to visit islands before you reach Honiara.
