Top 10 Things to See and Do on the Solomon Islands

Get more Tips here!

Taking a trip to the Solomon Islands will be unlike any other vacation you’ve ever experienced. When visiting one of the last untouched destinations in the Pacific, here are 10 things to see and do.

1. See the Traditional Villages
Choose the Kmaga Village experience where you’ll sleep in a beachfront bungalow and receive top-notch hospitality from the villages’ chief and local families.


2. Visit Central Market in Honiara
Head to Central Market in Honiara on the island of Guadalcanal. The stands are lined with crafts made by talented artisans, fresh fish, fruits, and veggies, and handmade souvenirs for you to take back home.


3. Rent a Boat
Various companies offer boat charters, or you can get behind the wheel and navigate the Pacific on your own. But you can always rent a kayak for a few hours and take in the sights as you paddle along the coast.


4. Snorkel in the Bonegis
They are known for being the best places to explore the Solomons’ marine life. Beneath the Pacific, you’ll see beautiful coral reefs, tropical fish, octopus, and maybe even a few shipwrecks from World War II.


5. The Vilu War Museum
The remnants from those battles during WWII with Japanese and American aircrafts can be found at this open-air museum located deep within the forest of Honiara.


6. Go Birdwatching
Grab your binoculars and your long-focus lens camera and make the trek out to Imbu Rano Lodge. Some of the bird species that you’re likely to encounter include parrots, kingfishers, and white-eyes.


7. Travel to Skull Island
Catch a plane to Munda. And take a boat to Vonavona Lagoon to reach the country’s most sacred place: Skull Island. It’s surrounded by human skulls who were killed during the islands’ headhunting days.


8. Chew a Betel Nut
You should take part in some of their traditional ceremonies, including a little bit of betel nut chewing. A betel nut is the brown or yellow seed of the Areca palm, and users have cited a euphoric feeling while chewing on the nut. All we have to say is: chew at your own risk!


9. Hike Up Kolombangara
This volcano last erupted 10,000 years ago. You’ll need a tour guide to lead you along the way and hack away at the overgrown brush that covers the trail. And after two days, you’ll finally reach the crater.


10. Fall in Love With Tenaru Falls
If you enjoy the great outdoors, we guarantee you’ll fall in love with Tenaru Falls near Honiara. To reach the falls, it’s best to rent a 4WD vehicle because it’s no easy trek through the rough and treacherous path. But it’s definitely worth the drive!

Solomon Islands Travel

Welcome to the Solomon Islands.a very special place… swaying palms, white sandy beaches, warm crystal clear water home to thousands of reef fish, a sacred place, a place where you can pay tribute to past heroes and learn a little of their battles. A place where you can cross a lagoon that you will never forget. A place where you can stay and eat in five star luxury or get away from it all in a home stay over water. A place that embraces the future but still holds on to the past and it’s traditional culture.
The Solomon Islands, Islands adrift in time, A place time passed by… however you describe the Solomons the Solomons are so Solomons so different.
