French Polynesia, Fiji, Tonga, New Caledonia, Vanuatu and New Zealand… the South Pacific offers some of the most beautiful, unspoiled and remote sailing on the planet, with crystal clear waters, endless white sand beaches and welcoming local communities.

The South Pacific: a sailor's paradise

The South Pacific offers a relaxing and idyllic sailing paradise unlike any other sailing destination in the world. Known for their friendly welcomes and delightful cultural customs, the communities of the South Pacific welcome sailors to share in their laid back lifestyle and spectacular natural environment above and below the waterline. For the many islands only reachable by boat a visiting yacht is an excitement.

Early Polynesians discovered the many stunning islands of the Pacific more than two millennia ago, guided by the stars and the currents.

And while populations have slowly grown over time, the stunning natural environment needs to continue to be  respected and protected, ensuring the sparkling blue waters and white sand beaches are as magical today as they once were all those years ago.
