French Polynesia

Last updated: 8 April 2018
French Polynesia is comprised of over one hundred islands scattered over a large section of the South Pacific. With rugged volcanoes, tranquil white beaches and turquoise bays this is one of the most popular of the South Pacific island destinations.

Game fish, dolphins, turtles, sharks and manta rays share the warm waters around the islands. The islands are surrounded by coral gardens where divers and snorkelers can explore the wide expanses.

Ringed by stretches of white, pink and black beaches, the lushly forested interiors are mountainous and rugged peaks touch the sky.  Surfing and kite surfing are popular as there is an almost constant breeze.

Tahiti and Bora Bora are the most popular of the islands and there is plenty to do around the islands. Here visitors are accommodated in lovely stilted huts, perched over the waters of the bay. The area caters to tourists so there are excellent restaurants, resorts and spas.
