South Pacific Transport Guide

How to get around the South Pacific

Much like the island vibe in general, transport around the South Pacific Islands is relaxed. Hiring a car or motorbike on an island is an excellent way of exploring those hidden corners. Otherwise, most resorts will offer shuttle and ferry transport to the surrounding attractions, towns, airports and islands. Public buses are also another option and can usually be hailed without the need to be at a bus stop. Taxis and minivan taxis are also available on the main islands within the South Pacific. If you're keen to check out a few different islands within the Oceania region, every nation has an international airport however there may not be daily services to all destinations. Another popular way to travel around the South Pacific is by cruiseboat with many international companies offering cruise routes from port to port in the region.
