review by . February 15, 2008
I'm dreaming about a trip to the French Polynesian Islands. With 118 islands and atolls this area has all the enjoyment of a tropical island paradise without all the tourists. There's a lot to do, everything from swimming with the dolphins, scuba diving, hiking, and mountain climbing. Plus with only an average of only 200, 000 visitors a year (as compare to the seven million that go to Hawaii each year), I know I'll actually be able relax on the beach and enjoy my vacation.     About …

About this book


David Stanley, the dean of Pacific Islands travel writers, is still going strong. His latest guides, the Moon Handbooks for Tahiti and Fiji, are reminders of the value of experience and straight-talk in travel journalism. Both guides have the usual Stanley organization: good maps, concise descriptions and contact information, and extremely useful tables with information on everything from population and size of islands to maritime coordinates.

We particularly like a new feature of the Moon Handbooks series: an up-front "best of" section marked with blue tabs. In this section, Stanley gives you his top recommendations for a typical vacation in either French Polynesia or Fiji. All experienced travelers are asked by friends for top recommendations. These are Stanley's, and given his experience, a visitor to either Fiji or French Polynesia could easily build a memorable vacation around just the "blue" section recommendations. -- Pacific Magazine, February 28, 2008
