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.
Honiara is known for historic sites, shopping, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the ancient world of Bonegi I and II, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Barnabas Anglican Cathedral, examine the collection at Solomon Islands National Museum, and stroll through Mbonege Beach.

For other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Honiara trip planner.
