Marau Sound Holidays
Guadalcanal is a mountainous tropical island in the Solomon Islands with plenty to offer guests outside of the hustle of the capital, Honiara. At the undeveloped Eastern end of Guadalcanal island is Marau Sound, an area of turquoise waters dotted with lush tropical islands. From Marau you can access the south side of Guadalcanal, known as the Weather Coast. Here you will find remote villages nestled along a rugged and dramatic coastline. This untouched tropical paradise is about as off the beaten track as you can get! With little to no tourist infrastructure, you will be able to get to know the area and live like a local.

This area of the Solomon Islands, and the Tavanipupu Resort in particular, is the perfect escape from a hectic lifestyle - even for the Royal Family!
Getting to Marau Sound
