The Solomon Islands are pleasantly void of mass tourism. For those that make it here no doubt wonder why. Even better is discovering Oravae Cottage a tiny island with a quaint cottage and "penthouse" double bedroom annex. You're fed by the local family who live at the end of the island and days are spent doing as much or as little as you please. Dive, snorkel, surf, trek or simply lie in a hammock watching the water changes from blue to green as the day goes by.
