Introducing Marovo Lagoon
On New Georgia’s eastern side, Marovo Lagoon is the world’s finest double-barrier-enclosed lagoon, bordered by the large New Georgia and Vangunu Islands on one side and a double line of long barrier islands on the other. It contains hundreds of beautiful small islands, most of which are covered by coconut palms and rainforest and surrounded by coral.
Here you can visit laid-back villages and explore tambu (sacred) sites, picnic on deserted islands, take a lagoon tour, meet master carvers, dive in fish soup, kayak across the lagoon or take a walk through the rainforest or up awesome summits.
Don’t expect paradise on earth, though. Truly idyllic stretches of sand are almost nonexistent, and years of intense logging have left their scars, literally.
