The tropical climate of the South Pacific and its more than 130 islands stretching from the Solomon Islands east of Papua New Guinea to the Tahitian archipelago in the far west make it the ultimate year-round cruising destination.
Geographically and culturally divided into several regions, including Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia, the South Pacific offers a myriad of cruising holiday alternatives.
The land is made up primarily of volcanic islands surrounded coral reefs and crystal clear waters in multiple shades of blue and green.
Diving and snorkeling are outstanding throughout the South Pacific. There are also miles of pristine volcanic beaches in varying colors, dotted with palm trees.
This is a wonderful place to relax and bask in nature. But the unique history and culture that can be found on each island chain are also well worth exploring.
