The Australian territory of Christmas Island proves to be an unexpected delight. It isn’t long before I have my first ‘wow’ moment here. Margaret Knoll Lookout is located just a few minutes down a dusty road from the island’s international airport that I’ve just flown into. At the end of that forested four-wheel drive track is an observation platform, beneath which the ground dips away rather unexpectedly. It’s a drop of more than 300 metres through tangled jungle vegetation to the island’s battered eastern shoreline. And there isn’t another person in sight.

Translating to life, bula (pronounced boo-lah) is a cheerful greeting you'll hear from the moment you arrive in Fiji. It means a lot of things – hello, how are you, hope you're doing well – but it basically comes down to the same thing: welcome to my homeland. It's this warm sense of welcome that you'll feel during a stay at the luxe Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort on the island nation's Coral Coast. It's easy to pass the days at this five-star paradise just lazing about under a shady palm tree, but for an unforgettable holiday with all the trimmings, tick these experiences off your bucket-list…

If you're dreaming of a tropical island getaway in the South Pacific that's away from the crowds, set your sights for laid-back New Caledonia. It’s a little slice of France in the South Pacific and whether you are a seasoned sailor or a nautical novice, there’s something for everyone here. Indulge in a yacht charter with or without a skipper, choose to have a host or hostess, or go without. There are cruises that last several days, some that sail the Great Southern Ocean and track the whale route, and even water taxis close to the capital of Noumea.
