French Polynesia holidays

Things to do

FAFF-FREE FRENCH POLYNESIA

French Polynesia is one of those bucket list places which really needs to be seen to be believed. Made up of 118 volcanic islands and low-lying atolls strewn across the sparkling Pacific Ocean, this place serves up stunning natural beauty at every turn. From lush forests and imposing peaks, to sugar-white beaches and crystal-clear lagoons, a holiday to French Polynesia will take your breath away. Combine that with the islands’ five-star resorts, world-class watersports and fantastic snorkelling, and it's hardly surprising that French Polynesia has become a haven for couples and honeymooners. So if you’re dreaming of an uninterrupted, luxurious getaway, French Polynesia might just be the place for you.

You’ll touch down in Tahiti – an island which gives a great introduction into what French Polynesia is all about. The mountainous interior is adorned with green valleys and soaring waterfalls, while the coast is a medley of beaches. You’ll find mysterious black-sand bays on the east coast, and powdery white sands on the west. Meanwhile, the bustling capital of Papeete is home to lively markets, bars and restaurants. Want to learn about fascinating Polynesian culture? Head to an at art exhibition, catch a concert, or pull up a chair and listen to stories from the friendly locals.

But there’s one place in particular which epitomises French Polynesia holidays – Bora Bora. This romantic island rises out of a glassy, turquoise lagoon, as its talc-like beaches give way to tropical slopes. Complete with thatched overwater bungalows dotted along the palm-lined shoreline, this place looks like a postcard. And Bora Bora’s underwater world is just as impressive as its luxury hotels. Here, you can swim with gentle manta rays and small sharks, or simply snorkel among the abundant corals and marine life.

Alternatively, Moorea is one of the more accessible islands. It’s easily reached by boat or a short plane ride from Tahiti, making it a popular choice for French Polynesia holidays. A natural playground, this scenic isle features hibiscus-filled gardens and rich valleys, where birds of paradise hop between the trees. Pastel-hued houses stand in the shadow of jagged mountains, while the island’s interior serves up all sorts of activities. You can go hiking, horse riding and biking, or head to the coast to enjoy diving, kayaking and paddle-boarding.
