    Norfolk Island is a small inhabited island in the Pacific Ocean located between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia.

Visit Emily Bay, where the great crescent shaped beach offers excellent safe swimming for families and snorkelling over coral reefs. Don’t miss Captain Cook’s Monument, a beautiful lookout overlooking the very small beach where Cook is believed to have landed and that is also a haven for the many seabirds.

    Vava'u, and the other 40 odd islands that make up this stunningly beautiful group, is situated in the north of the Kingdom of the Tongan archipelago in the South Pacific. Despite now being easily accessible, it still remains off the beaten track of mass tourism. Neiafu, the tiny capital on Vava'u, is perched above the Port of Refuge Harbour, a delightful natural harbour regarded by many as one of the most beautiful in the world. With its year-round tropical climate, being remote and truly unspoiled, the result is crystal clear waters with visibility exceeding 30 m. Read more about Vava'u, Tonga

    The Mutiny on the Bounty took place board the Royal Navy ship HMS Bounty on 28 April 1789, about 56 kms south-west of Tofua Island, Tonga. The mutiny was led by Fletcher Christian against the commanding officer, Captain William Bligh. The ship's mission was to sail from England to Tahiti, pick up breadfruit plants and transport them to the West Indies in order to grow them there as a cheap source of food for slaves. After five months in Tahiti, the Bounty set sail with its breadfruit cargo, the crew having lived ashore and socializing to the customs and culture of the Tahitians.

It is a beautiful tropical city full of colour and diverse cultures. Although it is the only place in Fiji where you will see buildings taller than palm trees, local folk traditions such as fire walks, welcoming ceremonies, wood-carving and the fabrication of tree-bark cloth, remain strong. Hire a taxi for the day or take a tour and enjoy its tall modern buildings which are beautifully balanced by rich traditional colonial architecture. Read more about Suva, Fiji

Nadi lives up to its reputation of 'the most often visited Fijian city' thanks to its international airport in the middle of town.
