Ghizo Island, Gizo

#3 of 6 in Things to do in Western Province
Island · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Encircled by sparkling waters and rimmed with white sand, tiny Ghizo Island deserves its reputation as an idyllic beach getaway. Home to Gizo, the Western Province's twinkling capital, the 11 km (6.8 mi) by 5 km (3.1 mi) stretch attracts surfers and divers as well as beach bums, while showcasing local delicacies in its popular restaurants. Due to its scale, everything here lies within hiking or swimming distance. Snorkel above unspoiled coral reefs in search of rays and rare fish, take a friendly tour through a native village, or simply enjoy the views with a drink in your hand. If time allows, explore Gizo's wartime history and hop across to neighboring islands. Plan to visit Ghizo Island during your Gizo vacation using our convenient Gizo driving holiday planning app.
