Tahiti Sunset

I'm digging this new site – Pacificislands.com – for trip planning to places like Tahiti, Tonga, Fiji, Samoa, New Zealand and the Cook Islands (just featured on the cover of our July/August 2011 issue). It has a great interactive map, booking tool and better, offers real-time deals on virtually all of region's airlines, cruises and resorts.

A few areas of the site are in development, but the foundation is there, and it’s a good one. It makes one-stop trip planning to the deepest corners of the Pacific possible, even when multiple islands are involved. In a region as vast as the Pacific, that’s a big deal.
