9. Niue

Niue (pronounced 'New-ay' - meaning 'seeing coconut') may be the smallest independent nation in the world, but the Pacific island is called 'Rock of Polynesia' (or just is the 'Stone') which is surprising for the bold traveler. The island is located in the middle of a triangle formed by Samoa, Tonga and Cook Islands. The island has a beautiful abundance of shady coves and rocky beaches, along with famous coral reefs.

Why you should get there?

As an independent governing body, Niue is home to a subcategory of Polynesia culture, languages and multicultural cultural practices that are quickly dissolved by Western influences. Visit early to catch Niueans in their last bloom in their own style. Includes the Peniamina National Holiday (also known as the Gospel Day) in October and the opportunity to experience Niuean's language skills.

Also, if you're a marine mammal fan, Niue should top your list for a trip between July and September, because a lucky diver will often face (or otherwise, face-to-face snorkel) with humpback whales.
Kayaking, fishing, caving and guided hiking are also worth the time to spend here.

But outside the famous tourist island and contemporary appearance is a strong culture, closely linked by traditional Polynesia values and immersed in oral history.

The Cook Islands

North of Raro, a wonderful lagoon of Aitutaki is surrounded by tiny deserted islands and is one of the most beautiful gems in the Pacific. Venture farther and strong Polynesian traditions appear near the surface. Drink beer at home at the traditional 'Atiuan tumunu'(dust beer club), discover the old makatea (big coral cliffs) and Mangaia's taro fields, or swim in Mitiaro's underground cave lake and Ma Muffuke. The distant northern group is a South Sea idiom experienced by a few lucky people.

The brave wanderer will find himself raising his eyebrows in the backcountry and once in a pool and waterfall for life.

3. Samoa

Seriously but spiritually, wild but well cared for, silent but born of volcanic explosions; Gorgeous Samoa is a paradoxical paradox. Despite the intense natural beauty - all the iridescent waters, jade forests and crystal waterfalls - this is a modest place, with no major resorts and flashy attractions, But warmly welcomed like the sun on the island.

2. Kauai, Hawaii

A list of famous Polynesia Islands will be a list without any shout for one of the incredible Hawaiian Islands. Not as majestic or volcanic as a large, or populous island like Oahu, Kauai makes a list of exactly the lack of Western influence that took place in places like Honolulu or even neighboring islands like Maui. Kauai registered in the countryside more than messy, however, for the rude Polynesia type adventurer, we believe it strikes the right chord. Just don forget to forget to pack an umbrella! Heavy rains can occur all year round.

Kauai, Hawaii

Why should you get there?

Favorite by both locals and visitors including Cliffside beaches and puddles along the stately Na Pali National Park, especially its lush vegetation. Ranked second is Wailua Falls, which is much more valuable than its screams in the Fantasy Island TV show. Both make walking easy and have not found a way into the kingdom of an overcrowded tourist trap.

With an incredible list of outdoor adventures, Kauaʻi will puncture your resort bubble. Here, you can fly up and settle in tropical valleys in a helicopter, glide through the trees on a cable, navigate narrow tracks to the shoulders of a sleeping or deep-lying giant into a big canyon.
