French Polynesia Highlights

A popular couples holiday destination or honeymoon spot, a trip to French Polynesia will be a time you will never forget. The stunning turquoise waters, glistening white sands and luscious green scenery combine for a truly outstanding location with a tropical climate that guarantees pure relaxation.

Whether you want to sip cocktails under a coconut palm, swim with sharks or head out on a day trip to a sleepy backwater, the options are here.

Spectacular is the word frequently used to describe the breathtaking backdrop that provides the picture perfect opportunity for those snoozing in the afternoon sun on the beach. But, it isn’t all about lazing around and there is plenty of exploration and sports to be done to keep active.

The less you bring the better when travelling to French Polynesia. Most of the days will be spent beachside with a nice cocktail or in the water enjoying the warm, turquoise ocean.

Most people travel during our summer months of May through October. At this time it is the dry season where you will be enjoying high 20s during the day and no lower than late teens in the evening. With this in mind, it is all about swimwear, shorts, t-shirts, skirts, pareos, sun dresses, flip flops and sandals. Light clothing that is comfortable to wear will be ideal during the day. Don’t forget a good sun hat, some sunglasses and maybe some reef walkers if you want to protect your feet when swimming.

As night falls it will still be warm so keep it comfortable. Consider taking a pair of slacks or linen trousers with a collared shirt if eating formally but it tends to be all casual in French Polynesia. A flashlight will be useful because it does get very dark while mosquito repellent needs to be packed and applied.

There aren’t many pharmacies on the island so be sure to pack all medical supplies and sundries you might need just in case.

  • Capital – Pape’ete on the island of Tahiti
  • Currency – CFP France which is used in French Polynesia, New Caledonia and Wallis and Futuna
  • Language – French
  • Time Zone – GMT-10

Sat south of the equator, French Polynesia’s climate is the opposite of that in the UK, with a dry winter period stretching from May through October and the summer rainy season that runs from November to April. Warm tropical temperatures can be expected year round.

Due to summer holidays, peak season falls in July and August and this is prime vacation time for natives and foreigners alike thanks to the Heiva Nui festival. The weather at this time is generally comfortable and dry as it is the winter but don’t expect chilly weather as the midday average is 28ºC and the lows go no further down on the thermometer than 20ºC. If you are on the south side of islands then occasional Antarctic winds can bring a cool breeze.

Summer does get humid, cloudy and wet. During this season you will see average highs of 30ºC with the temperature falling no lower than the early 20s in the evening. Be aware that the downpours tend to come in brief, violent storms but torrential rain is possible.
