Isolated Uepi Island, situated at the edge of the world’s longest lagoon (Marovo) offers a unique paradise experience and first class dive sites, conveniently located just off the edge of the island or a short boat trip away.

Waters are often very clear and tidal currents make the deep water passage adjacent to the island (The Slot) a prime habitat for colourful corals and sponges as well as reef fish and pelagics.

Uepi typifies the diversity seen throughout the Solomon Islands – ultra close encounters with families of manta are possible, and it may be possible to see orcas, Pacific sailfish & marlin.
