Overview

Few in the Western world can resist the lure of pristine beaches, endless coral reefs, and blazing tropical suns. As the world shrinks and troubles of various sorts have struck some of the more distant destinations, the islands of the South Pacific endure as a beacon of both the unfamiliar and the familiar. Not only is the South Pacific safe to travel in, it is still largely unspoiled for travelers willing to stray a little off the beaten path. Not far from most of the celebrated islands are those less discovered places, where Bali Hai lingers just around the corner, and beaches of white sand spell out escape and eternal summer. Thirty Days in the South Pacific gives readers a birds-eye view of the many island groups that make up this incomparably beautiful area and opens up new possibilities for experienced and novice travelers alike.
