South Pacific Islands like those you’ve seen in the “Blue Lagoon” (both films were shot in this island group.), this chain of 20 volcanic islands north of Viti Levu is fairly isolated except for its resorts, which are on a scale of budget to luxury (one of the islands is just one large private resort).

There is good diving, snorkelling and swimming and great beaches. Most of the resorts also offer other water based activities and some of the islands have nice tropical forest to wander through. Many of the resorts are marketed as 'secluded tropical island holidays' and the further north you go the quieter the island will be, so expect to leave feeling relaxed and at peace with your Blue Lagoon self.

Sea Kayaking in the Yasawa Islands, Fiji

The Yasawa Islands are a small and remote group of islands, located off mainland Fiji. There is probably no better way to travel between these remote and unspoilt islands than by sea kayak, passing through azure waters over reefs coloured with tropical fish. Spend nights camped out under the stars on sandy white beaches fringed with palm trees, or be hosted by some of the locals in their villages. Spend lazy afternoons fishing or snorkelling in the crystal clear (and warm!) waters, before heading out once again the following morning in your kayaks for the next perfect island.
