The turquoise waters and warm ocean breezes of the South Pacific draw thousands of adventure-seeking travelers to these white sandy beaches and tropical islands each year. Whether you want to relax on the sun-kissed shores of Hawaii, snorkel & dive in the clear tides of Bora Bora, or explore the mysterious Moai of Easter Island, you won't be disappointed. The remote seclusion of many of the islands have helped to preserve indigenous cultures, like those of the Melanesia region, including the Solomon Islands, Fiji, and Papua New Guinea. You can also enjoy the tranquility of a Polynesian vacation on the shores of Tahiti. To see the most stunning marine life on the planet, take a jaunt to the "land down under" to explore Australia's impressive biodiversity as you snorkel in the world renowned Great Barrier Reef.
