Blessed with literally tens of thousands of tropical islands, the South Pacific is a playground of water sports, white-sand beaches and an incredibly diverse collection of cultures, languages and local traditions. Strap on a SCUBA tank and explore Vanuatu’s famous shipwrecks, dig into a village feast and mingle with the locals in Tonga, or plan a pilgrimage to the mysterious Moai of Easter Island. The South Pacific has options aplenty for every beach bum, thrill-seeker and curious culture vulture.
