Island hopping in the SOLOMONS

You’ve got to have a real sense of adventure here in the Solomon Islands,” our lovely guide, Stella, tells us when we meet her at Honiara International Airport. She’s certainly not wrong.

Legend has it that a 16th-century explorer believed this to be where King Solomon sourced the gold to build his illusive temple (hence the name). While he didn’t fnd much of the treasured stuff, he wasn’t totally off the mark – the Solomon Islands is pure holiday gold.
