South Pacific Holidays
South Pacific holidays are the ultimate tropical paradise escape -chill out in beautiful surroundings and leave your worries far behind you. No need to rob a bank to get there either, there is plenty of island accommodation to suit even the tightest of purse strings.
Fiji is a popular spot for an island holiday as it has loads of awesome scenery, truckloads of activities and you can stay in luxurious beach accommodation for much less than you'd expect. The sparkling waters of the Yasawa Islands complimented by pristine white sands are amazing to say the least and the stuff travel brochures are made of. Scuba dive with manta rays or for more laid back leisure pull a stool at the bar and watch them swim by. A South Pacific holiday to Vanuatu offers awesome adventure activities like a Yasur Volcano tour. This active volcano is impressive by day but a magnificent fireworks display by night. A bouncing 4WD trip across rugged volcanic terrain will take you up the ash spine of the mountain and then you can climb the short distance to the crater rim. Lookout for exploding red hot lava bombs overhead and belching steam and smoke. There is an awesome view out to sea and the sense of danger from this spectacle of nature is better than any thrill ride at an amusement park.
At 2.5 hours from Sydney and 2 hours from Brisbane New Caledonia is so close to Australia that it's easy to jet over for a girly long weekend or a boys' weekend adventure. Featuring the second largest coral reef in the world, scuba diving here is awesome to say the least and you can also enjoy super snorkeling activity n the warm waters that are just bursting with marine life. Other activities include jet skiing, kite boarding, wind surfing and water skiing while whale watching is popular during the mating season of July to September. A cruise around the island in a glass bottom boat is a glorious treat and if you prefer laid back leisure you can take a nap in a hammock under a palm tree.
