Travelling to the Solomon Islands had always been on the to do list, it just looked like an absolute tropical paradise in the pictures we saw. We didn’t really know what to expect as there isn’t a whole lot of information out there. All we knew is that it was beautiful as well as full of history and culture. Perfect! Travelling to Papatura was a real adventure, from the 18 seater plane to landing on a grass airstrip and being ferried over to the island by boat. From the moment we caught a glimpse of Papatura, the excitement was uncontainable. It looked so wild and untouched. We had undoubtedly stepped off the map! Exactly the places we love to visit. We were instantly greeted by Pete, Marg and the two friendly dogs with a very warm welcome. What accommodating hosts, full of endless stories and history as well as mouth watering delights served to us every day and night. The highlight would have to be the divine crab feast along with freshly caught Spanish Mackerel! Our 6 nights on this tropical paradise was full of good times! The bungalows were perfect and spacious, with the ocean lapping gently underneath the deck to add that extra touch. There was never a dull moment with so many activities to do. From the surfing and paddle boarding to the jungle walks, kayaking, fishing and more impressively the snorkelling. There is always plenty on offer, as well as the option to completely zone out and relax. The best way we could describe the Solomon Islands and especially Papatura is that it is so ALIVE. The marine life is incredible and right at your doorstep. We have never seen so much variety and colour when snorkelling. It was so refreshing and exciting to see. You could sit and watch the water all day and there would be something happening. Thanks so much to Nick and Christine for organising our trip, we were lucky enough to spend some time with them over the holidays.

"Thank you . Yes we had a fun time. Quite a bit of it we had to ourselves pretty much. Surfing was good if not exceptional - I wasn’t aware that the tide pretty much prohibits anything but close to high and for us that eliminated everything except an afternoon surf, but it was a beautiful thing to bob around a break just Sam and I as the sun went down.
The crew did indeed look after us very well and the food was exceptional - the location is simply stunning. Will process the photos and get back to you should I find any decent ones. "
