The Marovo Lagoon has been proposed as a world heritage site and has received praise from a Pulitzer Prize winner. No wonder, considering the many miracles on offer, above the water and under the surface of the biggest saltwater lagoon in the world.
This is not a place where you need to blink twice to realise its beauty. No, the Marovo Lagoon, more than 100 kilometres in length, is the biggest saltwater lagoon in the world, it’s awe inspiring upon first sight as your small plane slowly emerges from the white clouds, you can see islands scattered all over the horizon. The intensity of the colours is outstanding. The green of the more than one hundred small, mostly uninhabited islands, the blue of the deeper parts of the sea and the white of the shallow coral reefs make you understand where the Solomon Islands flag got its colours from.
