Do you envision a remote island when you dream of getting away from it all? If so, here are five far away places in the South Pacific and Indian Oceans to add to your wish list. Gorgeous beaches and endless sea views are included, of course.
Hot Water Beach: Dig a big hole in the sand, sit in a natural hot tub, and relax in bubble-filled water on the North Island of New Zealand.
Nukunonu: Feel like an islander when you attend Sunday Mass, watch swimming pigs forage for shellfish, and paddle a dugout canoe on Tokelau.
Lake Lalolalo: Hike through overgrown orchards, dense jungles, and rocky cliffs to find a lake in a volcanic crater on Wallis and Futuna.
Laura: Drive along palm-lined roads, pass a World War II memorial, and find a deserted beach on the Marshall Islands.
West Island: Walk to an uninhabited island at low tide, snorkel in a natural aquarium, and fall asleep in a hammock on the Cocos Islands.
