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.
Escape the urban bustle at Mbonege Beach and Tenaru Falls. Get some historical perspective at Bonegi I and II and Holy Cross Cathedral. There's much more to do: take a peaceful walk through Honiara Botanical Gardens, learn about all things military at Vilu War Museum, appreciate the history behind Solomon Scouts & Coastwatchers Memorial, and take in nature's colorful creations at Solomon Islands Memorial Garden.
