If you’re keen on surfing, diving, snorkelling, fishing or kayaking, there is no better place to enjoy ocean life. Of course, you may simply prefer to kick back, relax and soak up the sun on a bed of spotless white sand.

With such an abundance of beauty on offer, it’s no surprise that the South Pacific ranks among the world’s best honeymoon destinations.
