Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a fun family holiday, or an opportunity to go on a Pacific cruise, or do some scuba diving, you will be able to find everything your heart desires.
Here are some of the top holiday locations we recommend for a trip to the South Pacific:
Fiji is the most diverse getaway destination in all of the South Pacific. With over 300 islands to visit, 150 accommodation options and more than 50 organised day tours to enjoy, there will never be a dull moment. Fiji is the envy of its South Pacific neighbours and boasts some of the best beaches and scuba diving the area has to offer.
You can spend your time lounging on the gorgeous palm-fringed beaches, taking a dip in the crystal lagoons, bushwalking in the lush tropical rainforest or immersing yourself in the traditional village culture of the people who live here. Fiji
is also very family oriented, and provides plenty of fun activities for people of all ages.
If you want to meet some of the friendliest people in the world, or explore some of the most beautiful untouched wilderness, then a New Zealand holiday is the right choice. With holidays to suit every budget and interest, you can choose your own adventure when vacationing here. Explore the vast wilderness and discover your own private beach, or hit up some of New Zealand’s world-class cities and do some sightseeing. There are plenty of fun things to do in Auckland
such as shopping, museum exploring or enjoying the nightlife, and there is plenty for the kids as well. If you are up for an adventure, you are sure to find one in New Zealand.
The Tahiti Islands are the epitome of Polynesia with its rugged rainforest-clad mountain peaks, stunning lagoons and an abundance of tropical fruits and friendly people. Tahiti is the largest island and is the most populated. Swimming beaches aren’t as spectacular here, but there are more amazing surfing beaches. The main attraction of the island is the beautiful and dramatic tropical scenery and waterfalls, which are accessible via a vast array of hiking trails.
Vanuatu is a collection of islands where you can find the Melanesian inhabitants living traditional lifestyles, involving a lot of fishing, planting and drinking kava. This holiday destination is the best for those who are interested in learning about more traditional lifestyles and are looking for adventure. You will find plenty of accommodation in the scenic town of Port Vila, but once you leave the village you will find yourself in very remote rural landscapes and traditional villages. Here you can hike through mountain ranges, visit the villages and take part in ancient ceremonies.
No doubt wherever you decide to take your next holiday in the South Pacific, you won’t be disappointed. Photo Credit: Sarah M Stewart - Flickr
