Beyond Fiji: The 10 best islands in the Pacific

There’s no safer, nor cleaner – nor more geographically blessed – region on the planet.

I never knew people locked their doors … we didn’t even have a key.

I grew up in the South Pacific, where crime barely existed. Still today, it’s only ever of the petty variety (terrorism and murder belong in other far-flung places …).

While Freeport is closest to the harbour, there are limited sites on offer in the town so passengers usually head straight to Port Lucaya, the tourist hub of the island.
