Solitude in the Solomon Islands
Because of its remote location, this country and majority of its islands are unspoiled and still new to tourism. This means that you will experience the most exclusive and relaxing holiday of your lifetime. With its tropical marine waters and wide-ranging pristine dive sites, Solomon Islands is every diver’s dream destination.
Reefs, Wrecks, Beaches and Everything in Between
Explore the unexplored corner of the Coral Triangle. The majestic underwater world of Solomon Islands is beyond compare. Take the plunge and see vibrant coral gardens and different species of fish, including pygmy seahorses, xenon crabs, mantis shrimps, squat lobsters and ribbon eels. Also, commonly spotted are clownfish and bumphead parrotfish. If you are lucky, you will encounter fascinating harmless reef sharks as well as schools of manta ray and Napoleon wrasse!
The Solomon Islands played a key role during WW2, particularly during the intense Battle of Guadalcanal between Japan and the United States. The USS Chicago heavy cruiser and Ro-34 Japanese submarine, which were both sunk off the Russell Islands, are just some of the wrecks that you might chance upon your next deep dive. Aside from scuba diving, you and your loved ones can go snorkelling in the crystal-clear turquoise waters of Mary Island, Marovo Lagoon and Florida Islands. The Solomon Islands also has mystical volcanic pools and waterfalls. Spend the day ashore whiling away the hours on the palm-fringed beaches, trekking mountain valleys, climbing volcanic peaks and visiting quaint villages.
