Best South Pacific holiday deals
Our favourite destinations in the South Pacific
- Easter Island. Also known as Rapa Nui, this island is full of geological and man-made wonders. For the best of both, walk around Rano Raraku, a volcano with a lake filling its crater and moai statues dotting its sides.
- Vanuatu. From cruises and resorts to ancient cultures and dramatically beautiful landscapes, the islands of Vanuatu have it all. Take a guided tour to the very mouth of Mount Yasur, an active, explosive volcano to witness the awesome power of planet Earth.
- Samoa. Do as the locals do in this vibrant nation: the Samoan Way is the islanders’ long-held, celebrated way of life. Get a glimpse into Fa’a Samoa at a Fiafia night full of dance, storytelling, music and food.
- New Caledonia. It wouldn’t be a trip to the South Pacific without some underwater fun. A snorkelling adventure in La Piscine Naturelle will see you surrounded by all kinds of curious tropical fish.
When should I go to the South Pacific?
To avoid the sometimes uncomfortable heat and humidity of the wet season, not to mention the possibility of cyclones, travel from May to September. June and August are the busiest months, so to avoid crowds and high prices, visit toward the beginning or end of this period.
