South Pacific Websites Offer Photos, Maps, Guides
Wednesday, October 26, 2005  10:18:00 AM

by David Stanley

South Pacific guidebook writer David Stanley has created three travel websites to display his photos, maps, and guides. Each of Stanley''s sites currently outranks all competitors on Google, Yahoo, and MSN.

Pacific Pictures is a 23-page collection of 207 travel photos from 15 Pacific island destinations. Aside from the country pages, has theme pages on beaches, buildings, cities, landscapes, people, ships, sightseeing, and trees and plants. A few of Stanley's photos originally appeared in Moon Handbooks South Pacific, while the rest are published here for the first time.

Map South Pacific describes and maps 16 countries and territories in Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia. Each political entity has its own country map, and individual island maps are being added on a regular basis. All maps are accompanied by introductions to their areas.

A separate section of exhibits 84 antique engravings of the western Pacific by French chronicler Domeny de Rienzi (1789-1843). Each de Rienzi print is presented as a captioned thumbnail, which clicks through to a popup of the engraving.

South Pacific Travel has been online since 1999. It provides answers to FAQs, weather and events pages, music and film catalogs, resources, and excepts from Stanley's four travel guides. covers Tahiti and French Polynesia, Pitcairn, Easter Island, the Cook Islands, Niue, Tonga, American Samoa, independent Samoa, Tokelau, Wallis and Futuna, Tuvalu, Fiji, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, and the Solomon Islands.

The ease of navigation and fast loading format makes visiting these sites trouble free. According to Stanley, "the websites were originally intended to promote my guidebooks, but they've taken on a life of their own. Unlike printed books which are unchangeable between editions, online information can be updated as often as necessary." Prospective Pacific travelers need search no further.
