Solomon Islands

Reef walls, caves, coral gardens and critters

The Solomon Islands are located in the South Pacific Ocean, east of Papua New Guinea and north-east of Fiji.  Extending for 900 miles, there are hundreds of islands making up this archipelago; ranging from heavily forested mountainous islands, to low-lying coral atolls. 

Fringing these islands are incredibly rich tropical seas – part of the South Pacific ‘Coral Triangle’ – where reef walls, caves, coral gardens and critter bays await you. Sharks, mantas, turtles and dolphins are commonly seen in the Solomons, as well as all the colourful reef fish and critters you would expect to find in the South Pacific Ocean.  There are also some very good wreck dives to be found here, including historic WWII sites.

How to get there

There are many ways to get to the Solomon Islands, but the most popular route is through Australia. Flights to the Solomons operate from either Brisbane and Sydney, depending on the day of the week, and flight time is approximately 3.5hrs.

Stay a bit longer

Due to the time it takes to get to the Solomon Islands there are many options you can take if wishing to extend your stay. You can choose to stay on in the Solomons at a beach resort to relax or to join days tours to visit places of interest. You can also extend your stay in Australia.  Whatever you may fancy adding on to your Solomons trip we will be happy to guide you and to assist with your travel needs.
