Escape to a South Pacific Paradise: Experience Tahiti and Fiji

With the temperatures dropping at home and the wild weather driving away the last memories of summer in Australia the mind begins wandering to warmer climates... And where better than the paradise islands of the South Pacific? With sun drenched beaches, stunning turquoise lagoons, a tropical climate and vibrant local cultures, Tahiti and Fiji are the ideal getaway close to home.

Tahiti

Romantic amber sunsets and endless stretches of white sandy beaches surround you on the islands of Tahiti making them the perfect location for honeymooners or couples. The tropical paradise is a collection of islands with an endless collection of sights and experiences. 

Your first taste of paradise may not be what you expect as your flight touches down in the capital of Papeete. A far stretch from the beachside postcard the main island doesn't boast the impressive beaches of her sister islands but it is beautiful in it's own right. With jagged jade topped mountains surrounding sapphire blue lagoons it is truly a spectacular landscape to witness. Many tours will take you on laps of the island and if you are staying on the main island then going for a hike amongst the picturesque landscape is a must. Papeete itself is a focus point of the local culture, a mixture of French colonial flair and native tradition. Walking through the historic streets you'll experience the melting pot of cultures so unique to these former colonial nations. 

Intercontinental Moorea
The Beach at the Intercontinental Moorea

Closest to the mainland, only hour away by ferry, is the magical island of Moorea. Cloaked by a green-velvet rainforest; its mountains rise sharply from the sea and then are softened by thin waterfalls tumbling down fern-lined cliffs, tranquil meadows and small villages inhabited by pastel-painted houses with gardens of hibiscus and birds of paradise. There’s plenty to keep you entertained while on the island; Moorea is a snorkelling heaven with abundant marine life, shallow waters and a lack of strong currents you can swim amongst coral and schools of rays all year round. If that isn’t enough aquatic adventure then check out the Moorea Dolphin Centre at the Intercontinental Resort Moorea or dive down into one of the many underwater chasms and canyons populated by schools of small and large marine animals. On land activities range from trekking up and down the magnificent peaks to visiting the local villages. Moorea has plenty to offer and plenty of luxury resorts to enjoy it from.

Over Water Bungalows at Le Meridien Tahiti
Over Water Bungalows in Bora Bora

The true crowning glory of French Polynesia however is Bora Bora. Home to some of the most luxurious and exclusive resorts in the South Pacific this gateway to paradise is the luxury playground for the rich and famous. Stay in stunning overwater bungalows from which you can dive into stunning lagoon waters or the bright blue ocean. Relaxing on pristine white sandy beaches with a cocktail in hand is truly inviting in Bora Bora, for the more active minded there is a multitude of options. The island resorts offer a wide collection of tours and activities including snorkelling with reef sharks and sting rays, jet ski safaris and scuba diving.

Most of the luxury resorts are located off the main island of Bora Bora but the main island has much to offer itself. Take a bike ride around the main island and take in the beautiful local sights and sounds. While on the mainland visiting the famous Bloody Mary's restaurant is a must, here you can follow the 'footsteps of the great and the good' as the restaurant is a favourite of celebrities visiting the island.

Palm tree shaded beaches, colourful reefs and lively locals adorn this island paradise. If you are interested in snorkelling or diving then this is the ideal holiday for you. Often called the soft coral capital of the world, Fiji enjoys easy access to a large number of reefs and diving locations.
