Solomon Islands Geography, Climate, and Weather

The Solomon Islands Archipelago is scattered in the southwestern Pacific, east of Papua New Guinea. The group comprises most of the Solomon Islands (those in the northwest are part of Papua New Guinea), the Ontong Java Islands, Rennell Island and the Santa Cruz Islands, which lie further to the east.
The capital Honiara is situated on Guadalcanal Island, which also has the highest mountain, Mount Makarakombu, at 2447m. The Solomon Islands are a remote and unspoilt travel destination, with a slowly developing tourist industry. The total area is 27,556 sq km (10,639 sq mi).

The climate is semi-tropical, mainly hot and humid, with little annual variation in temperature. The wet season during November to April can bring severe tropical storms.
