Best diving in the South Pacific

From Australia to French Polynesia, the Pacific islands are dream destinations for most divers. In the heart of the Pacific, islands such as New Caledonia or French Polynesia offer fascinating dives with sharks and manta rays.

The Pacific Ocean is also home to several UNESCO Marine World Heritage sites such as the Great Barrier Reef and Ningaloo Reef in Australia, or the lagoons of New Caledonia.
