1. Solomon Islands: 24,400 tourists
Despite beautiful landscapes and amazing beaches, there are only about 24,400 tourists visiting the Solomon Islands each year. The archipelago boasts six main islands and over nine hundred smaller ones, which all come together to create a sovereign country gorgeous enough to make the gods weep. Still, it’s not winning any popularity contests, however. Despite having attractions such as Mataniko Falls, Vella Lavella, and the National Museum of the Solomon Islands, tourists seem to prefer its neighbors New Caledonia and Vanuatu.
