The Solmon Islands for Families

The Solomon Islands are a great place to travel for families with children. Community and family are very important to Solomon Islanders and your family will be embraced just as warmly.

Family friendly accommodation

Children are adored so wherever you stay you'll find the staff have a knack for getting along well with them.

In Honiara, the pool areas at some of the tourist hotels and resorts will be popular with the kids and some organise special children's clubs to help keep them entertained.

Away from the city, there are island resorts, eco lodges and guesthouses across the budget and luxury spectrum, including Uepi, Fatboys, Maravagi and Tavanipupu among others. You'll find that manyare well set up to provide excellent options for a family holiday.

Choose a family bungalow on the waters edge with a separate bedroom for the kids to share and spacious airy verandas. Or a self contained apartment may suit you better depending on the configuration of your family group.

This is the perfect place to unplug and reconnect with each other.

Activities

For an adventure orientated family holiday, you'll find a visit to the Solomons rewarding and safe for everyone in your family.

You'll all love the safe snorkelling and swimming literally on your doorstep. Fishing and kayaking are popular with both children and adults, not to mention the pool tables and board games provided at some resorts, keeping everyone happy on those very rare bad weather days.

Let the children get into the water and see the dolphins, turtles and never ending schools of candy coloured fish. They'll have an amazing experience and they'll learn about the conservation of this incredible underwater ecosystem that's unlike anything else in the world.

Out of the water, there are jungle trails and archaeological and historical sites that are fun for families to explore. Some resorts offer a guided  night-time coconut crab walk - always one of the highlights for kids.

A hike to a nearby village will be a memorable experience for everyone with opportunities to meet the community including the local children, and learn about traditional customs.
