DIVE UEPI, SOLOMON ISLANDS
A classic raised barrier reef island, covered in impressive rainforest, outlined by fringing reef and sandy beach; flanked by the warm lagoon waters on one side, and the oceanic depths (6000ft/2000m) of "The Slot", a deep marine abyss, on the other. Uepi Island is approximately 2.5 km long and 300 metres wide, and the whole area, aside from the resort's cultivated tropical gardens, is covered with tropical rainforest interspersed with walking tracks. Uepi Resort is the only occupier of this remote island.
Uepi offers the unique opportunity to dive first-class sites that are only minutes away from the dive shop; conveniently located either off the edge of the island or just a short boat trip away.
It is common for divers to stay in the water for an hour or so on each dive because the top 5-10 metres have endless species to discover, allowing a diver to get maximum value from each dive. Rarely will you view such diverse concentrations of marine-life in such a varied environment, ranging from lagoon coral gardens to vertical drop-offs into 2000 metres of ocean (The Slot), mostly within the confines of a three kilometre stretch of reef.
Uepi Island Resort offers clean comfortable, fan cooled accommodation. One of the attractions of Uepi is the small number of guests sharing this beautiful island. Although there are 26 beds, approximately 20 guests is considered to be a full house. There are 6 individual and private bungalows, 2 units and 2 guest rooms. Each room has private amenities with ambient temperature showers, tea/coffee making facilities, fridge, and private balcony overlooking the magnificent New Georgia Mountains. Bathrooms are supplied with a range of natural plant/mineral based toiletries; hand wash, body wash, shampoo and conditioner.
