SOLOMON IS­LANDS

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - ESCAPE -

Af­ter a civil war that raged un­til 2003 and nat­u­ral dis­as­ters in 2007, is it the Solomon Is­lands’ time in the sun? It’s cer­tainly mak­ing con­sid­er­able ef­fort to lure vis­i­tors and be­come the hottest “new” Pa­cific des­ti­na­tion. The Solomons of­fer ex­cep­tional div­ing, with ter­rific marine life and nu­mer­ous Word War II wrecks to ex­plore, es­pe­cially off the is­lands of Ghizo and Guadal­canal. In West­ern Prov­ince, un­der­wa­ter vol­canos bub­ble. Vis­i­tors can also surf, hike, kayak or just laze around on an atoll undis­turbed by jet­set­ters: this re­ally is the place to get away from it all. vis­it­solomons.com.sb
