Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands

It’s easy to get lost in the vast Solomon Islands - out of 992 islands only 147 are inhabited. Yet this is where dugout canoes are still the main form of transport, traditional village life flourishes and nature is at its breathtaking best. Hike through the World Heritage listed tropical jungle on Rennell Island which is home to unique birdlife, turquoise waters and secluded beaches. Or trek the trail to the towering Tenaru waterfall near Honiara. The Solomon Islands are also part of the Coral Triangle with some of the best dive spots in the South Pacific. Swim through underwater caves with manta rays, turtles and dazzling marine life on the islands of Mundo and Gizo. The Solomons also have easily accessible shipwrecks that are perfect for snorkelling. Or head to Tetepare, ‘the last wild island’ and the largest uninhabited island in the Southern Hemisphere - rugged, cloaked in jungle, fringed by picture perfect coral reefs and home to resident turtles and dugongs.
