Solomon Island Travel Guide

Solomon Islands is a sovereign state located in Oceania, northwest of Vanuatu and east of Papua New Guinea. It consists of six main islands and over 900 smaller islands. Its capital, Honiara, is located on the island of Guadalcanal. The Solomon Islands archipelago, after which the country is named, is a group of Melanesian islands, including the Northern Solomon Islands and excluding outlying islands such as Santa Cruz and Rennell and Bellona Islands.See more information

  • The Solomon Islands are relaxed, unspoiled and welcoming. They have WWII relics scattered throughout their jungles, leaf hut villages with traditional culture and lifestyle, there is so much to see and explore. Beautiful landscapes, volcanic islands, huge lagoons, mangroves full of crocodiles, tropical islands and emerald forests provide diverse visual appeal to tourists.
  • The Solomon Islands have an equatorial oceanic climate and are extremely humid throughout the year. June to August are relatively cooler months. Security is a bit of a concern in the Solomon Islands, so follow the Embassy's travel advice or avoid traveling alone, especially to remote locations.
  • English is spoken by very few people and most natives use the local Melanesian pidgin as their lingua franca. Therefore, if you are traveling to remote areas, be sure to bring a guide.
  • Air India and Cathay Pacific have several flights to the Solomon Islands from India. Flights are to Honiara International Airport (HIR) in Honiara. From there, visitors can take other flights to travel to other parts of the country or take buses. Bus travel within cities or towns is not available outside of Honiara. Elsewhere, visitors can travel in open trucks or trailers pulled by tractors. The most common means of transportation in the Solomon Islands are dinghies or boats with outboard motors.
  • What to see in the Solomon Islands?

  • The Solomon Islands are not like other Pacific tourist spots. Top experiences include Marovo Lagoon, LangaLanga Lagoon, Kolombangara, WWII Relics, Mataniko Falls, Tetepare Island, Mbabanga and Tulangi Islands.
  • The Solomon Islands and their beaches are very little known, making them an unspoilt, little-known paradise. The country has exceptional biodiversity, with a variety of plant and animal species, with an emphasis on marine life. Bird watching is a popular activity where you have to go hiking in the interior of some mountains. Some of the popular destinations include Mount Guadalcanal, the highest elevation in Kolombangara, and parts of Makira, Malaita and Isabel.
  • Adventure seekers or nature lovers have plenty to choose from in the Solomon Islands. You can try climbing an extinct volcano, diving off pristine reefs, surfing the uncrowded waves, kayaking in the lagoon or scuba diving. Diving is the most popular activity in the Solomon Islands. The most popular places are Praia do Bonegi, MundaGizo and Uepi. Some impressive World War II wrecks lie beneath the surface of the ocean to explore.
  • The Solomon Islands don't have white sandy beaches or fancy resorts. You can mostly find ecological inns, traditional inns and comfortable shelters. These rustic, mostly family-friendly places are great for getting to know the traditional way of life and authentic culture. Honiara, Gizo, Tulago and Munda have tourist class hotels. Some luxury resorts can also be found in Honiara and the Western Province.
  • In Honiara you can buy local artefacts, clothes, souvenirs etc. The most popular place is the central market. In the western province of Gizo, there are several local shops and markets to explore. Some other options are Taro in Choiseul and Auka in Malaita Province.
  • There isn't much nightlife or entertainment in the Solomon Islands other than Honiara. Reputable hotels organize certain evenings of cultural events for the entertainment of their guests. Honiara has several nightclubs and bars, where you can have a drink with light meals. You can also enjoy a fine dinner in a fine restaurant, with a theater, film or music concert.
