Melanesia

Welcome to Melanesia

Vibrant coral reefs, astounding biodiversity, jaw-dropping natural beauty and a flamboyant culture – this is Melanesia. This chain of islands, including Solomon Island, Fiji, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, New Caldonia and Western New Guinea – make up a paradisical corner of the South Pacific.

While each of the islands can boast an over-the-top tropical setting, each has a distinct personality and culture. Dive into aquamarine waters to explore the wrecks of WWII planes and ships. Go deep-sea fishing for mackerel, yellowfish tuna and the legendary Papuan black bass.

Hike along the Lavena coast of Fiji, then return to Suva for a scrumptious dinner of Indo-Fijian curry. In New Caledonia’s capital, feel the French influence in chic cafes and boutiques, effortlessly blended with Melanesian culture of Grande Terre island.

Attend an island festival and mingle with festively adorned Highland warriors, fire dancers and oarsmen. Whether you’re staying in a luxe, eco-friendly resort or backpacking between rustic jungle guesthouses, the efforts you put into Melanesian travel will be repaid in spades.
