When most people think of romance they think of being serenaded by a gondolier on a canal in Venice Italy or strolling on the grounds of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. But then there are the islands of the South Pacific, and there are so many to choose from.
Now obviously I haven’t been to all of them, I can only wish. And I don’t know anyone that can say that they have been to more than a hand few; but I can personally recommend a few.
Fiji really needs no personal recommendation; many of the rich and famous have wedded and vacationed there. Nevertheless I do agree with their choice, it is beautiful. The once cannibalistic island culture holds a bit of mystical intrigue with their “how did they do that” fire walkers.
Then there is the romantic heart-shaped island of Moorea of the Society Islands, with its deep water bays and French influence. And who can resist their magnificent black pearls.
My favorite islands though are the Cook Islands, especially Aitutaki, even the name sounds exotic. It surely is the most amazing and unspoiled island in the world even after its brush with fame during the filming of the CBS reality TV show “Survivor.” Aitutaki with its breathtaking blue lagoon must truly be “heaven on Earth.”
So for this Valentine’s Day go for the gusto…book a trip to the South Pacific for you and a loved one…I guarantee with its beautiful people and landscape you will leave your heart there.
