Guadalcanal is where Solomon Islands’ capital Honiara is located. With tropical birds veering left and right over swaying palm trees, it is hard to believe that this mountainous patch of land was the South Pacific’s centre stage to one of the most decisive battles of World War II. But as you dive into the cool blue waters, you will come across shoals of multi-hued fishes disappearing into rusted remains of warplanes and battleships.
With tonnes of history, culture and natural beauty, Guadalcanal is one of the most interesting islands to exist in the South Pacific seas. The island dwellers fall into five clans, each of them with their own twist of history, mythology and customs (kastoms for them). While swimming or hiking, you will come across many WWII war sites and ruins overland and underwater. And for birdwatchers, there are over 200 varieties to take delight in. and of course, the scuba diving experience is something to be seen and not believed. Trust us, its spectacular!
