Western Province Resorts and Information
The Solomon Islands Western Province is almost exactly what you imagine being stranded on a desert island to be like. Except with luxury accommodation, fresh seafood, and 5* service. Lose yourself among the swaying palm trees, the soft white sand and the warm crystal clear waters of these remote, exclusive resorts.
Often considered the main tourist mecca for Solomon Islands, the majority of tourist facilities, including dive boats and surf schools are located here. Comprised of eleven main islands, including Gizo, New Georgia and Kolombangara, the Western Province is also home to Marovo Lagoon, the world’s largest saltwater lagoon.
Gizo, the capital city of the Western Province, is a one-hour domestic flight from Honiara. From Gizo, you will catch a short boat transfer out to your chosen island.
Things to do in the Western Province
In 1943 the islands were heavily occupied by Japanese forces and saw many battles between the Japanese and American troops. The number of wrecks left behind from these interactions is impressive, with many of the most visited dive sites made up of sunken warships. Anyone interested in history, diving, or both will be in awe of the diversity and sheer amount of marine life in this area of the Pacific.
The Western Provence is now known for having the best surf camps, kayaking routes and eco-resorts in the Solomon Islands. Not a hotspot for shopping or busy nightlife, calm days lead to breezy evenings to be enjoyed around a fire, under the stars. Indulge in massages, spa treatments, visiting local villages, swimming with colourful marine life or simply relaxing with a good book. With fresh food, magnificent scenery, and activities to keep even the most active guest busy during their stay,the Western Province is a must-visit destination during your Solomon Islands holiday.
