The surf washes vast coastal areas with waves of blue, green or sometimes grey shade.

The waves originate in the northern part of the Pacific Ocean and move towards the islands drawing thousands of people. Beware: enormous waves are only for experienced surfers!

From May through October the rough waves hitting the northern coast calm down and are perfect for swimming.

Most great surfing spots are clustered in the northern parts of the largest islands, such as Guadalcanal, San Cristobal, Malaita, New Georgia, Santa Isabel and Choiseul. Here beginner surfers can gain experience while professionals can refine their excellent surfing skills. Bays and rocky cliffs that create good conditions for experienced surfers are scattered along the islands. Sand beaches with quality beachbreakers stretch along the southwest coast.

This is also the place where some of the highest and the most dangerous waves are born.
