Just off the coast of Papa New Guinea is the Solomon Islands, an island nation with unique tropical flora and fauna and rich ancient cultural traditions. The local Kawio, who live in the nearby mountains continue the historic, cultural and religious practices of the first inhabitants of the islands. The archipelago is surrounded by splendid beaches and coral reefs.
Since the islands of the country are spread apart from each other, you can take a ferry to travel between them. Island hopping is an extremely popular activity, especially because each island has its own unique layout with caves, plants, birds, and animals.
A visit to the Kwaio villages is a fascinating and incredible way to see an ancient culture in action.
Relaxing on the Solomon Islands beaches, feeling the warmth of the sun, and bathing against the cool ocean waves are a great way to spend your holiday. If you’re up for an adventure, you can also try diving or surfing. Both water activities are offered to experts and novices. When you try scuba diving, you’ll discover an underwater world of color and adventure hidden beneath the ocean waves. Fishing is also very popular and there is no better place to cast a line than into the waters of the lovely Solomon Islands.
There are a few clubs and bars making up the country’s nightlife. Throughout the country, there are great places to meet the locals and other visitors.
The climate in the Solomon Islands does not usually vary to the extremes, but it very humid year round. The coolest months are from June through August and rainfall is usually heavier from November through April.
