Polynesian perfection

The landscapes of these wonderful islets are luscious, further enhanced by the tropical year-round climate. Literally located in the middle of nowhere, incredible verdant peaks sit like emerald gems in a sparkling sapphire sea. Beneath the surface, the temperate conditions and clarity provide optimum conditions for both seasoned snorkellers or underwater rookies, where all manner of marine life strut their dazzling stuff.

A refreshing cocktail is never far from reach, but be sure to try Kava, the potent ceremonial elixir of the natives made from the crushed root of the Kava plant. The drinking of which is a ritual usually accompanied by song and dance, which is prevalent across the South Pacific - the traditional Tahitian ‘Ote’a’ typifies this and truly gets you in the spirit of island life.

Lying south of the Pacific sits French Polynesia, a treasure trove arguably surpassing Hawaii in its idyllic nature. The inviting, sometimes secluded beaches are spread like carpet across the islands; volcanic and black in Tahiti, talcum-white in Bora Bora, and even pink in Rangiroa, all fringed by the gentle blue of the ocean. Little wonder that famed French impressionist artist Paul Gauguin spent his final years on these far-flung islands, cloaked from civilisation.

Each of the senses will be enlivened; whether it’s from the sweet scent of vanilla of Raiatea, the delicious fresh fruit of Fiji, or the mysterious Moai statues keeping vigil over Easter Island. Elsewhere, swim in a volcanic crater in Samoa, or don a fishing rod in the angler’s hotspot of Kiribati.

Just like the Polynesians in ancient times, one can today traverse these beautiful waters for themselves, though in slightly more sophisticated style!
