WELCOME TO FATBOYS
 
"Fatboys" is derived from the character "Joe" from the book "The Pickwick Papers" by Charles Dickens. Joe-the “fat boy” consumes great 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. 

Whilst at Fatboys Resort the customer becomes "Joe the Fatboy". Enjoy an ice-cold bevy, a plate of fresh crayfish pan-fried in lime juice and butter, a game of pool, or simply 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 meters 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. We have 5 bungalows that offer you with spectacular views of an early morning sunrise watched straight from your bungalow.

In August 1943, it was to this island that the crew of the PT 109, commanded by then Lieutenant Kennedy, swam after their boat was rammed and wrecked by the Japanese destroyer, Amagiri. Two American sailors died in the incident. Kennedy later had the crew swim to the larger Olasana Island.
