The South Pacific feels just like a dream! It is amazingly remote and remarkably diverse – the perfect place to de-stress, go on adventures and enjoy some fresh seafood.
It is incredible how untainted by tourism most South Pacific islands are. Blame it on the islands’ remoteness or blame it on the pricey airfares – few people who fantasize about the South Seas actually make the journey, which makes this destination feel just like your own private paradise!
Life moves slowly under the southern sun – it’s no wonder “sit-on-a-beach-and-read-a-book” holidays are why most visitors are here. But what if you’re craving a bit of action? Look around and you’ll find world-class surf breaks here, plus amazing snorkelling and diving sites.
More surprisingly, you’ll find awesome hiking opportunities to uncover crumbling tiki statues in the jungle, exciting trekking options to the top of a volcano, swimming experiences in a sea cave, and opportunities for rappelling down waterfalls or kayaking to forgotten, pristine beaches. Can you say “memorable”?!
Of course, we can’t forget about Australia when talking about the South Pacific. Whether you’re admiring rock art more than 20,000 years old in Kakadu National Park, floating in the azure waters of Rottnest Island, or admiring the iconic sites of Sydney Harbour, you will quickly fall in love with Australia.
Dive into famous reefs such as the Great Barrier Reef or head to the incredible wildlife parks outside of Brisbane and Darwin, then choose to ride on a 4WD tour and hit one of the many dirt roads leading to rocky outcrops, such as Uluru.
Here are some of the best islands to see in the South Pacific:
- Bora Bora, French Polynesia
- Aitutaki, The Cook Islands
- The Mamanuca Islands, Fiji
