Solomon Islands

The  Lonely Planet recently rated the Solomon Islands among the top five countries to visit, calling them “the South Pacific Islands as they used to be“.

‘Coral-ringed beaches, smouldering volcanoes and rainforest-covered mountains set the stage for unforgettable adventures, while traditional villages and tropical islands provide magnificent settings for a remote getaway’ is how the Lonely Planet describes the Solomons.

Solomon Islands form an archipelago in the Southwest Pacific Ocean approximately 2000 kilometres northeast of Australia. The capital, Honiara, is located on the Island of Guadalcanal. Solomon Islands is a parliamentary democracy within the British Commonwealth.

The Solomon Islands archipelago is part of two distinct terrestrial eco regions. Most of the islands are part of the Solomon Islands rain-forests region. More than 230 varieties of orchids and other tropical flowers brighten the landscape.

The islands’ ocean-equatorial climate is very humid throughout the year, with a mean temperature of 27 °C (80 °F) and just a few extremes of temperature or weather. June through to August is the cooler period. Though seasons are not pronounced, the northwesterly winds of November through to April bring more frequent rainfall.

Although Malaria occurs throughout the year in most areas of Solomon Islands, Imagination Island, with no fresh water, is a mosquito-free island. Nonetheless, we recommend that you follow medical advice on taking prophylactics against malaria and that you use an insect repellent at all times if you plan to visit other regions of the Solomon Islands.

At Imagination Island, we aim to give guests an unforgettable adventure.
