Part of the volcanic Santa Cruz Island group that belongs administratively to the Solomon Islands, the remote and rarely visited Utupua Island has been described as a small Bora Bora with its lagoon and barrier reef surrounding the high island. This indented circular island is about 11km across, and the surrounding reef 16km in diameter. The Solomons chain is 500km to the west. Fewer than 1000 inhabit Utupua with its highest point just 380m. Landing by Zodiac in a bay, the small coastal village of Nembao is a short walk away.

You may be fortunate to be greeted by children dressed as warriors – brandishing bows and arrows, shouting and yelling – racing with staged ferocity towards you. Whatever happens, you will be greatly impressed by the irrepressible good cheer of the Nembao villagers, and entertained by their traditional dances and songs. The beaches are lined with the houses, fishing canoes and small plantations of these Solomon Islanders. Mangroves line the waterfront, where you’ll find birdlife, fiddler crabs and mudskippers. Utupua is one of only three islands that still contains the Santa Cruz dove, an endangered species of pigeon.

The island's barrier reef offers great opportunities for snorkelling over brilliant coral formations teeming with fish. A fjord-like channel, lined by marshy mangroves, takes you into the heart of the island. Once ashore you'll find the island densely forested, and you may well take the opportunity to see the villagers caring for their prolific vegetable gardens. Among the marshy mangrove trees we learn about an ecosystem that is a beehive of biological activity. A forested path lets you climb high enough up the hillside where a magnificent view of the island's reef-enclosed perimeter is revealed.
