Sightseeing and excursions:
The archipelago is almost not affected by tourism. This poor country is not visited by many people, but all of them are attracted by the true naturalness of all the things to see and to visit on Solomon Islands. There is almost nothing artificial or created specifically for tourists. Those travelers who are looking for an extraordinary natural environment won’t be disappointed by any part of this small country. The island has a well-deserved reputation of perhaps one of the best place in the world, naturally designed for scuba diving and fishing experience.
As in many islands of the Pacific ocean, the biggest attraction for visitors of the Solomon islands is the underwater world. The combination of the charming coral reefs, sunken ships, and hundreds of places where crashed planes during World War II, especially in the area of Guadalcanal, make snorkeling and scuba diving the most attractive thing of the holidays. Despite the long, often bloody history of these places, Solomon Islands have an important historic interest, as they used to be a strategic spot in the Pacific ocean during World War II.
The waters of Iron Bottom Sound near Guadalcanal witnessed the fierce and bloody battles of American and British fleets with the Japanese. Here took the place one of the biggest underwater operation in the history in 1942-43. About 58 thousand of US Marines landed at Guadalcanal, today in the waters of the island lie around 50 big warships of the both sides, reminding of the destructive nature of the battle.
There are many natural temptations for tourists on Guadalcanal, but at first place, guests usually visit the capital of the island – Honiara. Many travelers describe their first impression of Honiara as quite disappointing, and they recall this city as dusty and unprecedented quiet.http://www.aztourstravel.com/solomon-islands/Island Tours
