Welcome to a secretive and fascinating world. Despite its huge potential, tourism is yet to take off in this quiet province that sees only a small stream of adventure travellers.

The population is all Melanesian except for approximately 2000 Polynesians who live on the faraway atolls of Ontong Java and Sikaiana.
