Munda – the jewel in the Solomon Islands dive crown

DESTINATION- Solomon Islands

A mecca for international SCUBA  enthusiasts looking to experience a  pristine, world-class dive environment,  it doesn’t get much better than Munda in  the Solomon Islands’ Western Province. Located in Vona Vona Lagoon, Munda  is just minutes away from some 40 dive  sites, offering the best of everything in this  region’s unspoiled underwater world –  from swim-through caves and submerged  WWII planes and boats to glorious  technicolour coral reefs.

Munda is also known for its spectacular  walls dropping off to over 600 metres  and the Grey, Blacktip and Whitetip Reef  sharks that patrol these waters – as do  Hammerheads. Eagle rays, Dogtooth  Tuna, Barracuda and many other pelagics  are also common. Here the water flow and  currents also create the perfect conditions  for Barracuda and Jacks feeding frenzies.
