Idyllic, Paradise and Exotic are words that come to mind when talking about the tropical islands of the South Pacific. Offering stunning beaches and reefs, crystal waters and lush jungle, the islands spread across the world’s biggest ocean feature some of the world most pristine beaches.
From shamelessly chic French Polynesia to the ultra friendly island of Fiji, this is a world of palm-fringed islands, sparkling seas, crystal white beaches and dripping tropical foliage. Beneath the waves there is more to discover, with enough marine life and colourful coral reefs to stimulate your senses.
When to go:
The islands of the Pacific tend to be hot all the year round, but during the wet season from about November to April, the heat humidity and rain can make things sticky and uncomfortable.
