The Solomon Islands is an archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean, about 485 km east of Papua New Guinea, and about 1,900 km northeast of Australia. Guadalcanal is the largest island. Other islands include Makira, San Cristobal, Vella Lavella Ren-nell, and Santa Cruz. The Solomon Islands is an exotic wonderland of varied landscapes, rich in cultural and biological diversity. Exploring volcanos, kayaking through pristine lagoons, discovering unspoilt cultural diversity or diving and snorkelling some of the world’s most colourful reefs and underwater wrecks are just some of the things that can be done on Solomon Islands. One of the largest lagoons in the world can be found here - Morovo Lagoon well known for its underwater sea volcanoes. Another interesting place that shouldn’t be missed is the Mataniko Falls. The falls are huge in size and offer spectacular sight. They rush into the caves filled with bats, swallows and stalagmites.
