Close your eyes for a moment. Can you smell that? That’s the intoxicating aroma of a fish on the grill, which you just caught while out spearfishing on a remote island in northern Vanuatu.

Do you feel that stinging sensation of sweat on your brow? That’s your nerves as you begin your steep ascent up to Te Rua Manga (The Needle) in Rarotonga, Cook Islands.

Countries like Vanuatu, New Caledonia, the Solomon Islands and French Polynesia are among the best places to experience off-the-beaten-track (forget the track) island life, and so we’ve created the South Pacific Cool Guide. It's the definitive list of where to sleep, eat, drink, surf and party on some of the most remote specks of sand scattered right throughout the southern Pacific Ocean.

Elsewhere in our first digital issue we explore all the new late night-adventures in the recently awarded 2032 Olympic city of Brisbane, we spotlight secret islands in New Zealand and highlight all the gear and gadgets you need to get back on the road.
