About Solomon islands

The Solomon Islands, a scattering of over 900 tropical islands and atolls, is located in the South Pacific to the east of Papua New Guinea. The capital, Honiara, is situated on the largest island, Guadalcanal. The islands stretch approximately 1,500 kilometres and have an expanse of 28,896 square kilometres. Named after King Solomon by Spanish explorers, the islands were believed to be the site of the biblical king's great gold mines. Known for their rich cultural diversity, the country has more than 70 different languages spoken by the population of about 685,000. While the official language is English, Melanesian pidgin is commonly used. The islands’ traditional culture is very much alive, with customary dance, music, and storytelling, particularly at island feasts and festivals. Economically, the country is primarily agrarian, with fishing, forestry, and small-scale mining forming the backbone. The islands' rich biodiversity and beautiful landscapes, including rainforests, mountains, and beaches, make it a haven for nature enthusiasts. The underwater world is equally spectacular, attracting divers from around the globe. The islands are also known for their historical significance, notably the brutal Guadalcanal Campaign during World War II, which marked a turning point in the Pacific theater. Despite facing challenges such as ethnic tension and infrastructure development, Solomon Islands continue to enthrall with their raw beauty and vibrant indigenous cultures.
