Distant tropical vacation destinations such as French Polynesia are looking more inviting than ever during the cold month of February. We especially like small secluded islands where you can have white sandy beaches all to yourself. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the South Pacific is not to be missed. Watch colored tropical fish, rays, sharks an moray eels swim in the ocean. Snorkel right in the turquoise lagoon, or sign up for an excursion with a picnic. The property offers complimentary outrigger canoes, kayaks and snorkeling equipment.
