Welkam to the Solomon Islands!
For the adventurous traveller yearning for a place un-spoilt by the mechanical humdrum of tourists, the Solomon Islands are the place to visit next. These islands almost make you forget the manic 21st century lifestyle you come from as the friendly inhabitants of this remote and un-spoilt island draw you into their warm world of age-old customs and unhurried simplicity. Despite this un-spoilt charm and remoteness there are still a number of Solomon Islands hotels for you to relax in.
The charm of the gentle people and their laidback way of life ring true and warm the heart. Add to that the unspoiled nature and the many things to see and do in Solomon Islands, with so many undiscovered points and places, and the low cost at which you can experience all this, and you will soon fall in love with the Solomon Islands. This is truly the paradise of the South Sea, promised ever so often by attractive brochures but never found.
The Solomon islanders still follow a traditional lifestyle, following their customs and living harmoniously within their environment. They are a hospitable lot, and you will be warmed by the affectionate welcome and help they offer so generously, everywhere you go from the local restaurants to the fabulous Solomon Islands resorts. This is something you will come to appreciate as you travel Solomon Islands more and more, especially when sometimes you feel you are the only tourist adventurously exploring the sparsely populated islands. And the funny part is, sometimes, that just might be true!
While Honiara on Guadalcanal is a must visit, Gizo and Santa Isabel are interesting too. Santa Isabel is hardly ever stirred by tourist activity, and if you do go there you may find yourself a lone adventurer in this 240 km long island! Check out our Solomon Islands map to acquaint yourself with the layout of the islands. More than 30,000 people live in Honiara. The spectacular Matanikau falls are a mere two hour walk away from Honiara town.
