Solomon Islands

The Solomon Islands are a paradisiacal and almost intact archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean that lies southeast of Papua New Guinea. Located in one of the geologically most active places on the planet, the Solomon Islands are above colliding tectonic plates. The islands are formed by volcanic magma rocks that formed miles deep in the Earth's crust. You can see several volcanoes on some of the larger islands and you can also visit the hot springs, while many of the smaller islands are simply small atolls covered in sand and palm trees, surrounded by coral reefs.
The villagers of Solomon live a totally sustainable life with fish from the sea captured in their canoes, fruits and vegetables from their gardens and houses built with mangroves and sago. They live in small towns, provided with rainwater and electricity, if any, is obtained from solar panels.

Destinations in the Solomon Islands

  1. Laguna de Marovo: Located in the western province of the Solomon Islands, the Marovo lagoon, known as the largest and best defined barrier system of double lagoons in the world. It is home to thousands of species of marine creatures with many inhabited islands, very friendly people who live in traditional villages and the most beautiful carvings of the Solomon Islands.
  2. Vona Vona Lagoon: Snorkeling or diving in the crystal clear waters, especially in the remains of WW2. Surf near Skull Island or Gizo, fish or simply relax admiring the wonderful seascape.
  3. Isla Vella Lavella: Home to many traditional villages, Vela Lavela is a perfect destination for those who want to touch the traditional lifestyle of the island of Solomon. You can reach the beautiful hot springs at the north end of the island using local canoes and walking in the jungle
  4. Mono and Shortlands: These islands are the advanced ones of the north of the Solomon Islands. It takes 14 days for a trip that starts in Gizo and visits Vella Lavella, Baga, Mono, Shortland before departing from North or South of Choiseul. Vella for hot springs, Baga for crabs, Monkey for peace and tranquility in an idyllic lagoon and The Shortlands for the relics of World War II.
  5. Choiseul: Beautiful anchors with jungle slopes. Fishing is good with some Wahoo and Kingfish waiting for your lure. Visit the turtle sanctuary of the Arnavon Islands nearby to see turtles that lay eggs or hatchlings of turtles that slip into the ocean depending on the season
  6. St Izabel: Home of the Papatura surf station and one of the few places in the Solomon Islands where you have the opportunity of some waves to surf.
  7. Malaita: Malaita has very few visitors and the chemistry still has to go there.
