Thriving in isolation, the South Pacific Islands boast unique ecosystems and cultures you won’t find anywhere else. These tiny smattering of dots spread across the Pacific Ocean may look insignificant and inaccessible, but you’d be wrong on both counts. These islands hide some of the Pacific’s most iconic names like Samoa, The Cook Islands, Bora Bora, Tahiti, and Tonga just to name a few. Whether you want to experience the bliss of a luxury resort or an authentically raw island experience, The Travel Project has got it all.
For the experience seeker, head to Vanuatu and Tonga. Successfully circumnavigating mass tourism and mainstream cruise ship ports, these islands have flourished in isolation. With deserted beaches, world-class diving opportunities and quaint towns, there’s more than just a beach resort to discover. The gritty backstreets and unspoilt beaches are unapologetically authentic – and we can’t get enough of it. Let your body clock run on island time where nothing can be rushed and the main activity, is no activity. Swim with whales, discover hidden coves and warm yourself in the island sun.
Next, for some world-renowned island hopping opportunities head to New Caledonia and The Cook Islands. Both modern and traditional spice the fascinating culture, while the sweeping views of world heritage lagoons will cure just about anything. For the luxury seekers don’t worry, the Pacific Islands have you spoiled for choice. Head to the crowning jewel of Bora Bora for the iconic luxury resort stays complete with floating bungalows, spa packages + more.
