Solomon Islands

Introduction

Hundreds of islands make up the Solomon Islands but only one percent of the landmass is habitable: the rest is coral reef, making Solomon Islands holidays all about the water and what's under it.

The capital Honiara stands on the island of Guadalcanal, the scene of a number of World War II battles. There are some sights to see in the city and Mataniko Falls a short walk away, which plunges into a cave full of stalagmites, bats and swallows. Nearby Savo Island is worth a visit for its spectacular hot springs, mud pools and geysers.

The Western Province is often the focus for Solomon Islands travel; pristine lagoons, tropical islets, skull shrines and world-class diving are the main attractions. Ghizo Island is a good base for diving holidays, whilst surfers should check out the swell at Pailongge. The Nggela Islands in the Central Province are also popular dive destinations.

Whilst all of the Solomons are remote Malaita Island is a particularly good place to lose yourself, with sacred caves, deep valleys, fierce rivers and a wealth of traditions, including shark worship, still practiced today.

What our clients say about our Solomon Islands holidays

  • I had a complicated and lengthy trip to organise with unusual destinations, all of which was handled efficiently by my Wexas agent. I felt confident in the details of the itinerary which she supplied for me.
