    Destination Information

    Gizo

    Gizo is a tropical island of sparkling lagoons, crystal clear waters and palm-fringed beaches. You will find no shortage of activities departing from this stunning volcanic island. You can go snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding, biking, surfing, trekking and of course scuba diving. 

    Gizo’s history is an interesting one. The island was taken over by the central government after surrounding island tribes joined together to obliterate the Gizo’s native tribe, who had a reputation and history of barbaric headhunting practices. This then allowed land and property to be easily obtained by non-traditional landowners, subsequently leading to Gizo becoming the hub of the Western Province. During WWII this hub was occupied by Japanese forces to provide them with a base in the South Pacific, leading to several wrecks being located in this region.

     

    Dive Gizo

    Dive Gizo offers exciting diving just minutes from Gizo. Opened in 1985 by Danny and Kerrie Kennedy, Dive Gizo maintains the standards of excellence in diving, while making every trip exciting and relaxing. Dive Gizo is the only PADI Dive Facility in Gizo and has on staff a full-time PADI Instructor. So whether you are ready to try diving for the first time, or a seasoned veteran, Dive Gizo will cater to your needs.

    Gizo has some of the best and most exciting diving in the world from WWII wrecks to reefs that have some of the highest fish counts in the world. You will surely find something new and exciting under the surface. Each dive is led by a local trained and experienced guide, and in small groups of 4-6 people, no crowded boats, no tight time schedules!

    The waters around Gizo are sheltered from the sea, and generally calm. For this reason, 7 metre covered ray boats are operated enabling individual needs and schedules to be catered for. A feature of the dive day is the picnic lunch provided in between dives on on one of Gizo’s gorgeous deserted islands, with time to snorkel, relax or explore the islands. For the non-diver, Dive Gizo also conducts many WWII tours, bird tours, snorkeling, surf drops, and village tours.

    Fatboys Resort

    “Fatboys” is derived from the character “Joe” from the book “The Pickwick Papers” by Charles Dickens. Joe-the “fat boy” consumes high quantities of food and constantly falls asleep in any situation at any time of the day; the Fatboys life revolves around drinking, eating, sleeping and making every conceivable effort to avoid work.
    While at Fatboys Resort the customer becomes “Joe the Fatboy”. Enjoy an ice-cold bevvy, a plate of fresh crayfish pan-fried in lime juice and butter, a game of pool, or kick back and be mesmerized by the myriad of tropical fish swimming underneath you.
    But being closely related to the writings of Dickens, there are, of course, many adventures to be had.

    Fatboys Resort, Bar & Restaurant is situated 100 metres out atop the crystal clear waters of Babanga island. A 10-minute boat ride from the airport and 15 minutes from Gizo, the provincial capital of the Western Solomons.
    They have five bungalows that offer you spectacular views of an early sunrise that you can watch straight from your bungalow. The bungalows are constructed of traditional leaf and local hardwoods, which are designed to take advantage of the magnificent surroundings—featuring large veranda’s capturing the seductive views of the crystal clear water of Mbambanga Island. Quality imported furniture and bedding will ensure your stay is better than anywhere in the western province.

    Fatboys Resort offers a unique hideaway and is the ultimate tropical beachside reef experience.
