The waters around the Solomon Islands are known as Ironbottom Sound due to the World War II shipwrecks littering them. Divers know the area well, but there’s more to do in this chain than exploring the sunken hulls of battleships. Book a stay at one of the many hotels in the Solomon Islands now and experience the charm of this archipelago.
From relaxing on tropical beaches to climbing a dormant—or so they say—volcano, there’s no shortage of activities to keep you busy. If you really want to go into the wild, jump on a two-day hiking trip up the slopes of Kolombangara Volcano. You’ll camp in the jungle and bushwhack your way up 1,770 metres until your head is in the clouds. When you’re worn out from all that climbing, head back to Solomon Island accommodation for a little R & R.
If you want to fit in with the local population, make your way to the capital of Honiara and catch a football match. Check out the hotels near Lawson Tama stadium and watch one of the local teams play while enjoying a bag of fried breadfruit, a popular snack. The stadium is unique in the sense that there’s no official seating capacity because it’s built into the hillside. Cheer away!
Solomon Islands holidays kick off when your flight lands at Honiara International Airport (HIR), just 8 km from the city of Honiara. Use one of the Green Path Transfers cars to get you into the city or other parts of the island of Guadalcanal. If you want your own vehicle, Wotif can get you great car hire deals in Honiara. Get one and traverse the jungle roads whenever you please.
