Since the Spanish explorer Alvaro de Mendana first discovered this hidden gem in 1568, the Solomon Islands have been attracting international visitors. Mendana's legacy can still be found in the Solomon Islands today, with numerous islands still bearing the Spanish names he gave them: Santa Isabel, San Cristóbal and, perhaps the most renowned of all, Guadalcanal.

The Solomon Islands are well-known for their quiet and reserved local people with a colourful combination of Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian cultures. Following Mendana's discovery they were pretty much left alone until 300 years later, when Great Britain was given control of the entire territory, bringing important changes to this quiet paradise. Solomon Islands became a household name when the forces of Imperial Japan invaded the region, becoming the scene for some of the bloodiest battles in the South Pacific. The most famous is the Battle of Guadalcanal where thousands of Japanese and US servicemen lost their lives. In 1945 the British regained control of the Islands and in 1976 Solomon Islands became self-governing. In 1978 they gained full independence.
