Green Gems in a Blue Ocean
Adventures in Paradise
A hammock set between swaying palms; an outrigger canoe gliding across a sparkling lagoon; a row of thatch-roofed bungalows facing the beach. These visions become reality for those who visit the islands of the Pacific. Some landscapes are dominated by towering volcanic peaks; others form low-lying atolls that encircle fish-laden shallows. The age-old ways of Oceania are reflected in the traditions of hula, Kava ceremony and tattoo body art, and longstanding traditions of hospitality await all who travel. Some come to unwind at upscale resorts that soothe and pamper. Others seek authentic adventures such as shark dives, whale encounters, surf trips and jungle tours.
