Your love affair with Moorea begins on a clear day in Tahiti, with the sight of giant peaks rising like shark fins out of the blue waters on the horizon. As you leave Tahiti behind on the ferry, dolphins lead the way into the harbor like a welcoming party. Moorea is known as ‘the magical island’ and for good reasons. Tahiti’s little laid back sister feels is a world away from the big island, with time ticking away so peacefully as you’re living the Polynesian dream. Moorea’s twin bays carve out the island’s signature heart shape, and its lush deep valleys spill into a massive lagoon that feels like a giant heated pool.
Fiji is the perfect destination to live out your Robinson Crusoe fantasy. While it consists of some 332 islands, only a third are inhabited, and even there, it's not hard to escape the crowds.

And you should: Fiji's appeal is not just the islands' solitude, but also the unique culture and cuisine.
