Western Province

A group of islands to the north-west of Guadalcanal, this region has some of the best developed and most interesting tourist destinations to be found in the country.  Ghizo Island is one of the smaller islands in the group and Gizo is the main town there, also the capital of Western Province.  With just 6,000 people living in the town, it’s not a huge centre, but is still one of the larger towns in the country.  Gizo is home to excellent surfing spots and you will find many more surfable beaches and offshore reef breaks throughout Western Province.  There are plenty of quality snorkelling and diving sites not to be missed.
