Disney's new film "Moana," revolves on an island life full of spectacular beaches and crystal clear waters. These picturesque natural wonders were actually inspired the Pacific Islands, so for the beach lovers out there who want to experience wading in the beautiful salty waters inspired by Moana, here are the islands you can check out:

Fiji is anyone's total beach paradise. Nestled in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean, this small island country offers tons of exhilarating beach experiences you couldn't get anywhere else, which makes it a perfect inspiration for Moana.

It is made up of 332 islands, spread out over 7000 square miles. However, ¾ of the population resides in Fiji's two biggest islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Locals here still enjoy the native beach village life, despite their modernization. Succulent seafood and pristine waves can be enjoyed in this beautiful country, made up of friendly locals and top-notch resorts.

You could really feel as though you're in the actual "Moana" setting when you set foot in Samoa. Locals live in their unique culture and traditions, which is a refreshing change of pace compared to usual hustle and bustle of a normal city life.

All the beaches and natural wonders surrounding Samoa are nothing short of magical. In addition, their local cuisine is so good it may even surpass top Michelin-starred restaurants! They are living in what they call "Fa'a Samoa", the Samoan way. People here enjoy their culture- just like Moana- so if you pay a visit, make sure to experience their enriching way of living, and respect their local traditions.

Surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef, Bora-bora could not be any more perfect. Although it's already a famous tourist destination, you can still enjoy the tranquility and peace in this island.

Resorts here typically feature Water Villas as their accommodation, and this paradise is known for being a destination for honeymooners. Utterly secluded, you could enjoy a week here with your loved ones and let the waves of Bora-bora melt your stress away.
