Getting to Tetepare
Tetepare Island is in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands. Overseas visitors will need to fly to the capital Honiara and catch a domestic Solomon Airlines flight to the town of Munda. From Munda, private boat transfers to Tetepare Island are available.
Getting to the SOLOMON ISLANDS

Getting to TETEPARE, WESTERN PROVINCE
Once you are in Honiara, the easiest way to get to Tetepare is to take a domestic flight from Honiara to Munda (a town in the Western Province). Our guides will meet you at the Munda airport (sealed airstrip) and accompany you on the 1.5-2-hour trip to Tetepare in a small motorised boat. Please note, for safety reasons this trip should be made during daylight hours, and so if your flight arrives in Munda after 4pm, you will need to spend the night in Munda and travel to Tetepare the next morning. There is accommodation available at Agnes Lodge in Munda..
The boat trip to Tetepare from Munda takes about 1-2 hours, and is a scenic journey along the coast of Rendova Island. Life jackets are provided. We recommend you bring sunscreen, a sunhat, sunglasses, a raincoat and a bottle of drinking water for the trip. Please note, the journey to Tetepare takes us outside the lagoon and on occasions we do encounter wind, swell, chop and waves on the trip, however all our boat drivers have many years of experience driving the routes to and from Tetepare in all conditions. The current cost of the trip, per boat, covers the cost of a driver and the petrol for the boat to come to Munda to collect you and then return to Tetepare with you on board. We endeavour to keep the price of the transfer as low as possible for guests, however, the price is dictated by the cost of fuel and Tetepare’s remoteness.
