Solomon Islands Holidays - one of the best South Pacific destinations
Planning the ultimate tropical vacation? Look no further than the Solomon Islands, where every visitor feels “welkam” as soon as they land in this South Pacific paradise. With untouched beaches, colourful marine life, a fascinating history and friendly locals, the Solomon Islands tick all the boxes for an unforgettable holiday. It really is the perfect destination for a family trip, couples retreat or solo adventure.
The Solomon Islands are where you’ll make family memories that last a lifetime. Whether you’re traveling with young children, teens or a group, there is so much to see and do.
If you have a large group and want to keep things simple, Honiara is the place for you. There are a number of family friendly hotels in the Solomon Islands’ capital city, perfect as a base in between your many adventures. Many offer comfortable accommodation for the whole family and stunning views of the lagoon, known as Iron Bottom Sound.
There are a number of group friendly activities while enjoying your stay in the South Pacific, with swimming and snorkeling at nearby Bonegi Beach top of the list. You can hire equipment, or join a tour, with local Honiara based operators. Your kids may even be interested in WWII history once they see all the shipwrecks and war relics scattered in and above the waters around Honiara.
If you are all looking for some above ground activities, there are plenty of options. The whole family can visit a local Melanesian village, or how about the Guadalcanal Memorial for a little more history, or the local food markets located just near the Heritage Park Hotel.
If you’re looking to venture out of Honiara and experience more of the Solomon Islands, island hop to Gizo or Munda. Both are short flights from Honiara (don’t forget to get a window seat to see the amazing views from your Solomon Airlines flight). Both Gizo and Munda are known for their pristine waters, filled with marine life, coral and unlimited water activities.
No matter what you do, the whole family will experience the warmth of Solomon Island locals and beauty of the South Pacific during your holiday.
