Cave sights in Solomon Islands
- Sort by:
An hour's walk east of Auki is Riba Cave, but you can make it shorter by taking a taxi then walk the final stretch (about 20 minutes) down to the entrance. It's a haunting cave, with stalagmites, several large subterranean chambers and an underground river. Caveat: it's very slippery. Take a powerful torch (flashlight) and wear sturdy walking shoes.
You'll need a guide to visit Riba Cave, which is on private land and difficult to find. Contact Silas Diutee Malai (tel: 40389), a freelance guide who charges. Make sure that kastom fees are included in the prices he quotes. He can also arrange cross-island treks and 'river drifting' on a tyre down the Fiu River.
