Taro island is about 2 kilometres across and may be about 4 - 5 kilometres long. There is an airstrip that provides air services to the island. The island has dial-up internet service that works 24 hours a day. In addition there are pre-paid and post-paid mobile phone services that can access the outside world.
Overseas visitors can use the Solomon Islands SIM card on their unlocked mobiles to access the mobile phone network in the country. There are two mobile phone companies that operate in the country so it worths to inquire in Honiara ( the capital of Solomon Islands) before going to Taro.
There is no regular electricity at Taro at the moment.
Choiseul Bay station is less than 10 minutes away on the mainland of Choiseul Island. The new provincial head quarter of Choiseul Province will eventually re-locate to the mainland at Choiseul Bay.
TARO SDA COMPANY CHURCH
The Taro Seventh-Day Adventist(SDA) Company Church is near the Taro Hospital. The church was originally built by the SDA local churches of Koa, Kinoso, Katurasele, Tuno'e and Ghazakeo villages in 2002. Villagers brought most of the building materials with them to Taro but some materials where taken from Solovai village and from the nearby Zupizae island. It took the villagers three(3) days to build the church.
