Solomon Islands … an instagrammer’s paradise

The Solomon Islands is one of the most beautiful places in the world — its pristine islands and beaches, colourful locals and endless greenery need no Instagram filters.

An instagrammer’s paradise, the best thing about the Solomon Islands is that you don’t need to dodge those other pesky tourists that get in the way. The seclusion of some of these spots in the Solomon Islands means you can get the exact right angle you want.

Here are just a few reasons why you can up your Instagram game in the Solomon Islands.

 

The water is so blue and clear, and the sand so white, there is no need for any filters

 

 

There are activities like trying to paddle in a traditional dugout canoe

 

 

Or stand up paddle boarding over picturesque reef

 

 

Then there is some amazing war history and wrecks to dive and snorkel

WRECKED | Just off Bonegi Beach in the Solomon Islands is the shipwreck of Japanese vessel the Kingugawa Maru. Thanks to @davidkirklandphotography who was the eye in the sky taking this photo as I was swimming out to the wreck. . #travel #travelling #instatravel #southpacific #islands #paradise #escape #holiday #instatravel#travellerkate #capturedtravel #travellingsolo #gotravelsolo #GlobalSurfSounds #solomonislands #wherewildthingsroam #visitsolomons #islandparadise #flysolomons #MACfest2018 #Melanesia #culturalmelanesia #cultural #culture #tribe #tribal #melanesiantribes @ssolomonislands @visitsolomonislands @solomonairlines @thewildthingsroam @globalsurfsounds @capturedtravel @gotravelsolo

The palm tree lined shores are just begging to be photographed

 

 

Deck chair time while the sun sets is a must

 

 

There are overwater restaurants that offer the best dining view

 

 

And if you like seafood, then it is plentiful (and looks stunning)

 

 

The locals are so friendly (ok … these guys look a bit menacing)

 

 

As do these guys …

FIERCE | Choiseul tribesmen from the Solomon Islands look menacing – like they just devoured someone with those red mouths. This is of course from chewing betel nut, although islanders from Choiseul Province were once ill-reputed as brutal cannibals. . #travel #travelling #instatravel #southpacific #islands #paradise #escape #holiday #instatravel#travellerkate #capturedtravel #travellingsolo #gotravelsolo #GlobalSurfSounds #solomonislands #wherewildthingsroam #visitsolomons #islandparadise #flysolomons #MACfest2018 #Melanesia #culturalmelanesia #cultural #culture #tribe #tribal #melanesiantribes @ssolomonislands @visitsolomonislands @solomonairlines @thewildthingsroam @globalsurfsounds @capturedtravel @gotravelsolo

The women are just as stunning in their traditional dress

 

 

The different islands have their own unique culture, like these Pan Pipers from Santa Isabel

 

 

Best of all, you will often have the place to yourself to enjoy
