Key Cruising Areas - A superyacht guide to Asia Pacific cruising destinations, with sample itineraries
As a diving destination, Solomon Islands boast clarity of water and diverse underwater terrain, marine life, coral reefs and wrecks. There are a multitude of dive sites to choose from. As the setting for some of the most bitter and desperate battles during the Pacific War, the wrecks of hundreds of ships and aircraft litter the ocean floor, and now form spectacular artificial reefs which attract masses of fish and an incredible variety of coral life.

The islands are becoming known as one of the last remaining frontiers for travelling surfers, with plenty of opportunity for surf exploration. Long period ground swells pulse consistently from the North Pacific. The famous swells that hit the north shore of Hawaii reach the Solomons some days later and break on perfect coral reef passes. These coasts are remote areas with little tourist facilities and even fewer people.

Make sure you visit and experience some of the country’s volcanos. A two-day hike to the top and back will see guests scale Kolombagara - a perfect cone-shaped volcano that rises to 1770m from a one kilometre-wide coastal plain. Tinakula is the most active volcano in the Solomon Islands. One of the least-known active volcanoes, its remote location in the eastern Solomons means that it is seldom visited; perfect then to sit back and get a taste for the majesty and power of this corner of the world.
