Palau travel guide

4
Bodies of Water · Scuba & Snorkeling · Shark Diving
Visit Palau for an island holiday of exploration, relaxation, and culture. Adventure across the country's many limestone islands, covered in a wealth of vegetation and brimming with wildlife, and head out into the surrounding waters to dive, snorkel, and swim in an abundant marine environment. Learn about the native culture during your Palau holiday through traditional villages, live performances, and, of course, by delving into the local cuisine. Tours and accommodations across the islands offer good, convenient options for exploring the atolls at your own pace.

Federated States of Micronesia travel guide

4
Bodies of Water · Ruins · Fishing Charters & Tours
Visit the Federated States of Micronesia to experience life on its 607 small islands, scattered across more than 2,600,000 sq km (1,000,000 sq mi) of the Pacific Ocean. These tropical lands dotted in the sea formed as the result of volcanic activity millions of years ago. Today, the four states each have their distinct culture, but share a common ideal of sustainability coupled with an abundance of biological diversity on land and at sea. Enjoy the traditions of the welcoming Micronesian people, and travel between the islands to observe their similarities and differences. A Micronesia holiday offers true exploration, with points of historical, biological, and cultural interest.

Marshall Islands travel guide

3.6
Bridges · Nature & Parks · Churches
A chain of coral atolls and volcanic islands, Marshall Islands are probably best know for their coral reefs, which teem with marine life. A holiday in Marshall Islands is the perfect choice for anyone looking for that classic beach experience on white sand lapped by gentle warm waves. You'll probably spend most of your time there swimming, snorkeling, or diving. If you're a fan of cultural activities, consider visiting a few farms or explore the curio shops, which sell souvenirs made using traditional methods.

Samoa travel guide

3.9
Geologic Formations · Waterfalls · History Museums
Enchanting Samoa and its people boast a legendarily laid-back approach to life, and clocks and set times are merely a formality here. The society remains a proud one, deeply connected to a set of millennia-old traditions known as "Fa'a Samoa"--the Samoan Way. Spread out over two main islands and several smaller landmasses, Samoa is a land of incredible contrasts and natural beauty, home to rocky volcanic mountains and expansive beaches, rugged cliffs and lush rainforests. Visitors on holiday in Samoa can easily spend their time exploring the country's exotic interior and untamed coastal reaches, which offer plenty of wildlife and fantastic landscapes. Alternatively, they can just as readily kick back in sleepy seaside villages, indulging in a full-service resort, or splash around in lagoons and at beaches that hold their place among the world's best.

Niue travel guide

4.2
Nature & Parks · Scuba & Snorkeling · Historic Walking Areas
One of the world's tiniest independent nations, Niue packs plenty of appeal for bold explorers. A trip to Niue reveals rugged terrain--you'll need a good pair of hiking boots to climb and walk to some of the island's top attractions. Guided tours abound, but you can always rent a motorcycle of bicycle and set off on your own. If you're into active vacations, consider making your holiday in Niue all about caving, snorkeling, fishing, hiking, or kayaking.

Cook Islands travel guide

4.2
Beaches · Concerts & Shows · Scuba & Snorkeling
Scattered across a 2,200,000 sq km (849,425 sq mi) zone in the vast Pacific Ocean, roughly halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii, the Cook Islands are about as remote a holiday destination as you will find. With their pristine white-sand beaches, tranquil azure lagoons, lush tropical jungles, and teeming coral reefs, the 15 islands seem plucked from a picture postcard of paradise. Relaxation comes first and foremost, for locals as much as tourists, and you will find the laid-back lifestyle of the Cook Islanders as infectious as their warm smiles. As tempting (and fulfilling) as it might be to spend all day swinging lazily in a hammock strung between shady palm trees, plenty of adventures await exploring the idyllic scenery overland, on the waves, and undersea.

Tonga travel guide

3.9
Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches · Nature & Parks
The Friendly Islands
Spread out over 177 islands, Tonga features an incredible array of natural environments and places to visit. "Island time" remains omnipresent in Tonga, and visitors may find that locals are in little hurry in their day-to-day lives. While sightseeing in Tonga, head for the country's three main island groupings--Vava'u, Ha'apai, and Tongatapu--to enjoy a taste of their world-class snorkeling and diving opportunities. Reefs and forests burst with life and lush foliage, and lend themselves well to enjoying the great outdoors, while sun-kissed beaches and idyllic lagoons make for fantastic lazy days along the shore. Alternatively, take advantage of the country's prolific whale-watching industry--frequently ranked among the best on the planet.
