The peppering of Pacific Islands east of Australia dotted around the vast Pacific Ocean offers visitors warmth from every angle; from the sun’s rays to the hospitality of the locals, your welcome will be bright. The islands of Fiji, Tahiti and Bora Bora present luxury holiday experiences far beyond the norm.
Bora Bora is surely the closest you’ll get to paradise with its turquoise lagoons, powder white soft sands, palm trees, over-water accommodation and the imposing, lush green backdrop of Mount Otemanu and Mount Pahia. The island of Fiji is as perfect for a family-friendly escape as a honeymoon or relaxing beach break. The luxurious accommodation will further enhance what is on its own an exceptional experience in one of the world’s most desirable locations. As the largest of the French Polynesian islands, Tahiti is home to the international airport (Papeete) offering an enchanting landscape of picture postcard beaches and impressive landscapes.
The summer months in the region are generally from November until April - meaning this is the hottest, most humid and wettest time to visit. The winter - May to October - is the peak time for visitors as the temperatures remain warm yet there is much less chance of rain and conditions are less humid. The region generally falls into GMT +12 hours with flights taking around 24 hours from the UK with stopovers.
Whether you’re looking for a secluded beach to while away an afternoon sunbathing with a refreshing cocktail, or yearning to explore the landscape of an unspoilt paradise on foot, the South Pacific has it all. Home to some of the friendliest people in the world, you will notice the local Fijian people call out with the words ‘Bula’ both in passing and in greeting, traditionally meaning hello, welcome, thank you, goodbye - to name a few.
On these secluded shores, make sure to take the time to snorkel and explore the coral reefs, trek through the forests and see the tropical wildlife, dine in style on fresh fish while watching local performers showcasing traditional dance or even spend an afternoon on pristine greens surveying some of the most spectacular golf course views in the world. Whether you’re travelling as a couple, as a family or on your own, the world-class beaches, unspoilt islands and breathtaking views of French Polynesia and Fiji will utterly enchant you.
Say ‘South Pacific’ to anyone who’s not been and the words conjure up images of crystal white sands, swaying palms, azure waters, thatch-roofed over-water bungalows and paradise islands which are home to residents with an easy smile. At the Inspiring Travel Company, we know you won’t be disappointed if this is your own image, and we’ll help to create the perfect journey that will resonate in your memory forever more.

Fijian cuisine here is all about fresh produce and fish straight from the ocean, with tropical fruits also playing a big part in the daily offerings.

Also lying within Fiji’s paradise bounds, is the Vomo Island Resort - a private island with just 28 villas and two private residences with a distinctively Fijian feel. Vomo Lailai (Little Vomo) is a deserted island just a short distance from Vomo - a tiny honeymoon island offering the ultimate Robinson Crusoe experience in luxury.
Steeped in history, Tahiti is the largest of the Society Islands and the largest island in the Windward group of French Polynesia. The interior of the island offers unforgettable opportunities for exploration; discover impressive waterfalls, archaeological sites and grottoes aplenty and then there are the most impressive features of Tahiti: its beaches. With a sea full of life, spend your days admiring the underwater wonders, or head to Moorea for a shopping experience at their small boutiques and markets. Tucked away in the Leeward Islands of the Pacific Ocean and surrounded by turquoise lagoons and a barrier reef is the island of Bora Bora - a popular choice for those who wish to while away their days in none other than paradise. To say that this island will enchant you is an understatement; picture white sand beaches, an ocean so clear you will have the perfect view of the coral reef and tropical marine life below, world class luxury accommodation and island restaurants that are as famous as the island itself.
Fiji is an intriguing place as it comprises a radiant flotilla of some 332 islands that are all cast amongst miles of crystal clear waters interlaced with intricate coral reefs and spot lit by spectacular sunsets, only 1.5% of this water lover’s paradise is dry land. The marine life here is some of the best in the world and from corals to sponges, whales to manta rays - this water world is a submarine wonderland.
