The hustle and bustle of Honiara, the capital of Solomon Islands, provides a nice counterpoint to the slow pace and laid-back atmosphere in other areas of the country.
Explore hidden gems such as St. Barnabas Anglican Cathedral and Solomon Scouts & Coastwatchers Memorial. There's lots more to do: hunt for treasures at Honiara Central Market, take in the dramatic scenery at Tenaru Falls, admire the natural beauty at Solomon Islands Memorial Garden, and kick back and relax at Mbonege Beach.

For more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Honiara online travel planner .
