5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference guide
We have been sailing in the South Pacific for the past five years and have used this guide extensively to help us plan our shore-based adventures.

Although the particular issue I have is a 2006 version, it is still remarkably up to date.

We have been sailing in the South Pacific for the past five years and have used this guide extensively to help us plan our shore-based adventures.

Although the particular issue I have is a 2006 version, it is still remarkably up to date.

Each country is introduced with some general information on culture, hiking, diving, etc and is followed by highlights of the country. Following that the book goes in to further detail by specific areas and regions.

My copy has been well thumbed through with lots of highlights, that have maximized our enjoyment of this wonderful area - the South Pacific!

It is very obvious that the author of this book has actually been to the South Pacific - he is very enthusiastic about the area - and sincerely wants his readers to love it too! We have followed the book's on two trips and have found the advise to be 100% accurate. I highly recommend this book - it can be trusted.

This book covers only the hot spots likely to be visited by someone with not over two weeks to spend in the South Pacific. Any place slightly off the beaten tourist track or without comfortable hotels isn't included. Goodwin does tack a few cheap hostels onto the end of his upscale hotel listings, in a condescending way. It's a cleverly written book, well suited to the package tour market. In short, a guide intended to help you spend money rather than save it.
