This little tropical getaway is situated at the edge of the longest lagoon in the world, the Marovo Lagoon (nominated for World Heritage listing). The diving and snorkelling are fantastic, with the seaward edge of the island dropping down to an incredible 2,000 metres. There are six spacious bungalows for families or couples, two units and two guest rooms. It’s the type of place where 20 guests is considered a full house. Uepi is the epitome of a lost island escape but with all the comfort trimmings.
The Solomon Islands is a country just waiting to be discovered and Uepi is a must on that adventure.
Take a flight from Brisbane, Australia to the capital Honiara, where you can then catch a small plane to Seghe where you will be met to then take a boat to Uepi Island.
Prices from US$260 for a double bungalow.
Ask for a room near to the main living area – this way it isn’t such a far walk to amenities.
