Berlin Lau Lagoon Homestay
This stunning location in Lau Lagoon has a rich history. The islands had been formed in the early 1900's so locals could escape the feared head hunters of the region. Berlin is built on two islands and is a homestay that would not be forgotten. You can also experience a bath which is like no other in the Solomon Islands.
