The Solomon Islands' Western Province is the country's tourism drawcard, popular for world-class diving, beautiful islands and great fishing. Sadly, it was struck heavily by a tsunami in February 2007, which destroyed significant infrastructure as well as claiming the lives of many locals. Several resorts were unaffected though and naturally rebuilding has taken place since then to cater to the tourism industry.
The Western Province is a collection of islands, covering 5,475 km² in the north western part of the Solomon Islands, bordering Papua New Guinea and Bougainville.
See the Solomon Islands article for a list of national holidays.
Western Province has a tropical climate with temperatures averaging 28 °C in coastal areas. May to November tends to be the drier time of the year with June to August being the coolest months of the year. The northwest monsoon season is from November to March, bringing with it warmer and wetter weather and occasional cyclones. The annual average amount of precipitation is around 3,000 mm, though locally places can get much wetter.
