The Maldives islands are home to some of the very best scuba diving in the world. Even if you’re not a diver, snorkelling in the warm waters offers wonderful opportunities to spot a wide variety of marine life. Some resorts have their own diving schools, whilst others have their own reefs and you may even see whale sharks.
The main island of Tahiti is served by direct flights from both Auckland and Los Angeles. This makes French Polynesia accessible from anywhere in the world and means French Polynesia is great stopover option on the way to/from Australia or New Zealand.
