People enjoying Manly beach in Sydney, Australia

Get Manly

Bondi Beach gets all the attention, but Manly Beach in the Northern Beaches is a bit more local. The Corso is lined with shops and restaurants, including local favorite, Hugo's.

The Gap offers breathtaking views of the sea from the rocky cliffside.

A plate of fresh Sydney rock oysters

Local Cuisine

With all the water surrounding you, it's no surprise seafood takes center stage on many plates in the city. Head to Sydney Fish Market for giant Sydney Rock oysters or classic fish and ships.

An opal ring displayed on a stone

Shopping

There are plenty of shopping malls in the heart of the city, including Westfield Mall, Pitt Street Mall and the wonderful Queen Victoria Building, which is now a shopping mall featuring top designers.

During your Sydney cruise vacation, look for jewelry made from opal, the national gemstone of Australia.

The Colo-I-Suva rainforest will entrance you with its stoic grace. Green branches provide shelter from the sun and a resting place for darting tropical birds.

A straw skirt

Shopping

Take a break from the tropical heat and step into the air-conditioned Tappoo City shopping mall. A mix of high-end stores and everyday shops, it's a shopaholic's island dream. At the Municipal Handicraft Center, find bargains on tapa cloth, jewelry, traditional wood carvings and decorated bowls.

INSIDER TIP

Don't engage the street peddlers and sword salesmen — they tend to be pushy and are difficult to turn down.

A Legendary Leap

Head to Wakone called to see Le Saut du Guerrier — the Warrior's Leap. According to island legend, warrior Here Hnor was once cornered here by his enemies, and to escape, he made a daring seven-meter leap over to the other side of the cliff. Soak up the history as you stand in the same spot as the warriors of old.

Tropical fish and coral off the coast of Mare, New Caledonia

Crazy for Coral

At the Shabadran Terraces, layers of coral form an expansive reef under turquoise water and crashing waves. Every so often, water rushes through blowholes, exploding into the air with a rainbow spray. Reach the terraces with a short drive through swaying coconut trees or a two-hour hike.

A sea turtle swimming in shallow water

Turtle Time

Head to the La Baie des Tortues at high tide to find a wealth of sea turtles milling about, casually munching sea grass as they go. After checking with a local, you can swim with these gentle creatures in their natural habitat during your cruise.

Multiple chicken shish kebobs with a bowl of salad on the side

Local Cuisine

For the best eating on Mare island, head to the casual beach-side huts. Settle down and indulge in a few brochettes — island-style skewers of chicken grilled over a fire. Eager to share the catch of the day, locals will offer you freshly caught lobster and crab platters with a rustic charm.

Wooden turtle souvenir sculptures

Shopping

There are a few small market stalls where you can find little handicrafts and keepsakes. Experience Kanak fashion and get your hair braided in a traditional native style by one of the local women. You can use Australian Dollars on the island to pay for any goods you want to buy. Cruise to Mare and bring home a tribal turtle sculpture for good luck.

INSIDER TIP

Many of the main sights are unmarked — chat up a local to point them out to you, or hire a guide to take you around.

DAY 9 - TENDERED

Mystery Island, Vanuatu

Go on a Coral Safari

Because Mystery Island is so secluded, the coral is exceptionally healthy and the fish plentiful. Whether you are swimming or snorkeling, you'll pass clown fish, parrot fish, barracudas and majestic sea turtles. You might even be lucky enough to glimpse a seahorse.

What's SUP?

Hop on a quick boat ride to the nearby inhabited island of Aneityum for a little adventure. From there, you'll be given a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) and a quick beginner's lesson on how to use it. Enjoy the remainder of your time by SUPing around the lush bay in cool island style.

Embrace the Escape

Unlike most of your other stops, this island is unfrequented and small — give yourself permission to slow down. Take a break from the real world and take in the shimmering turquoise ocean with your Mystery Island cruise. Dig your toes into the white powdery sand, and breathe in the warm, tropical air.

Grilled lobster on the beach

Local Cuisine

The inhabitants of the nearby Aneityum come to the island to prepare food and entertainment for visitors. They serve traditional Vanuatuan food, which is simple and delicious. Cruise to Mystery Island and tuck in to freshly caught grilled lobster for lunch, and treat yourself to island banana pie for dessert.

Sarongs for sale on the beach

Shopping

Along the beach, you can find small market stalls set up by locals. They sell postcards, sarongs and traditional trinkets. For a more cultural experience, have your hair braided by one of the local women or enjoy a traditional Vanuatu massage on the beach.

INSIDER TIP

There are no rentals on this island, so bring your own snorkeling gear. It's worth it.

Wander the Water's Edge

Lifou's beaches are long stretches of postcard perfection. Sand as soft as talc powder and oceans as blue as the lapis lazuli will tempt you to stay forever.

A traditional hut on a beach on Lifou, Loyalty Islands

Get Cultural

Native culture still thrives in Lifou. The Melanesian people on the island follow a meaningful traditional way of life in harmony with nature. Find out more about their culture by visiting one of the traditional huts — while most are private, a few are marked with signposts that invite visitors to view them, including one on the route to Notre Dame de Lourdes church.

Grilled fish in a banana leaf

Local Cuisine

Try the native dish bougna, a melt-in-your-mouth combination of crab and island yams cooked to perfection in banana leaves during your Lifou cruise. The dish is sometimes served with chicken instead of seafood and often contains sweet fruits like taro or pawpaw. The marketplace is near the port and is the perfect place to grab lunch on the go.

An assortment of colorful necklaces for sale

Shopping

At the open-air marketplace, you'll find vendors dressed in traditional island garb selling native creations. The local culture is called Kanak, and they create beautiful tribal masks and jewelry you can take home as a keepsake. While you shop, grab a freshly hulled coconut to stay hydrated island-style.

INSIDER TIP

Respect the culture of the island, and always ask before entering a beach, grotto or hut.

Sydney, Australia

ARRIVES:
6:30 AM
WALKING ON

SUNSHINE

The Blue Mountains, just an hour west of central Sydney, feel like they're world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. With more than 1 million hectares of forests, cliffs, canyons, caves and waterfalls — and plenty of walking paths to take you there — this is one of the best day trips Sydney has to offer. Quaint towns such as Katoomba stand in stark contrast to iconic landmarks such as the Three Sisters, the towering rock formation overlooking the valley.
