The South Pacific islands are the definition of paradise. The abundance of wildlife is sure to capture your lust for adventure. Tropical rainforests and soaring mountains surround beaches with warm, powdery white sand and aqua waters.

Mystery Island, Vanuatu

This tiny, uninhabited inlet, originally named Inyeug, is located at the southernmost end of Vanuatu. The archipelago is approximately half a mile from the mainland, Aneityum Island. Used during World War II as an airstrip for the Allied forces, it was dubbed “Mystery Island.” Because, its location prevented the Japanese from seeing it from the water, making the appearance of allied planes a “mystery.” With its white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees and spectacularly clear waters, Mystery Island still holds the allure of a secret oasis.

You are greeted upon arrival by live music wafting through the air and a colorful marketplace. Rows of stalls selling everything from handicrafts to local treats to hair-braiding services. For the adventurous, aquatic activities, snorkeling, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding beckon. While a glass-bottom boat offers a more sedate and drier way to enjoy the Technicolor marvel of the surrounding coral reef. Round out your visit with a trip to a nearby cultural village to learn more about the traditions and customs of island life.

Suva, Fiji

The Fiji archipelago is at the cross roads of the South Pacific. In the days of sailing ships, it was known as “The Cannibal Isles.” Where mariners carefully avoided its fierce warriors and perfidious waters. Thankfully, Fiji’s pagan days live only in the tales recalled by tour guides – in rituals such as firewalking, Kava Ceremonies and in renditions of tribal drumming, dance and song.

Fiji is an exotic destination, with 333 islands that provide an exciting adventure or peaceful repose. The northwest region, where the sun shines almost every day and a tropical shower ends as quickly as it began, is home to the majority of the resorts. Suva, the political, administrative, educational and commercial center, has a backdrop of lush rainforest maintained by the inevitable “tropical downpour.” The people of Fiji are the most multiracial and multicultural of all South Pacific island countries – this being reflected in churches of all denominations, mosques, temples and shrines.

Built around a reef-protected natural harbor, Suva, with its colonial buildings nestled alongside modern commercial venues, shops and local markets, parks and residential sprawl, is home to nearly half of Fiji’s urban population.

Dravuni Island, Fiji

Less than two miles in length from north to south, Dravuni Island lies in the Kadavu Island group of Fiji. Its volcanic peaks give way to a remote village of just 200 or so friendly villagers who live amongst the island’s shady palms. These welcoming locals and their children often sing to arriving visitors.

Well-worn trails scattered with coconuts snake around the unspoiled beaches, the soft sands beckoning underwater adventurers towards the crystal-clear waters. Many visitors come to snorkel in the Great Astrolabe Reef, or to hike Dravuni Island’s highest peak for magnificent once-in-a-lifetime views of the surrounding islands.

Lautoka, Fiji

The second-largest city of Fiji, Lautoka is located in the west, on the island of Viti Levu. It is nicknamed The Sugar City due to its expansive sugarcane plantations producing the island’s most important crop. Its soft-sand beaches are fringed with swaying palm and coconut trees reflected in the crystalline turquoise waters. A drive through the city center allows glimpses of tree-lined streets, colonial houses, colorful markets and a vibrant local culture.
