As the dark, cold days of winter approach, wouldn’t you rather be lazing on a South Pacific island, relaxing in an overwater bungalow, or taking a dip in a tranquil, azure lagoon?
Numerous island chains are dotted across the vast expanse of the South Pacific, easily accessible by those wanting a peaceful retreat for their vacation. There’s plenty of adventure as well from off road jeep excursions to hiking, snorkelling in the lagoons, scuba diving, sailing and water sports.
The rich cultural heritage of Polynesia and Micronesia add to the vacation experience. History buffs will find there’s much to learn as they explore the region including the migration of the early Polynesians; the expeditions of Captain James Cook; the Bounty mutiny and the exploits of Robert Louis Stevenson and Paul Gauguin, two of the many writers and artists who called the region home. Discover the Cook Islands, Fiji Islands and Tahiti Islands.
