Reasons to Visit
Tahitian culture is more in evidence now that ever before and not just in the sophisticated dances and performance art but in the revival of symbolic tattoo art through which Polynesians use the dark strong colours to assert their ma'ohi identity.
Rangiroa was described by Jacques Cousteau as the richest aquarium on the planet matched only by the other great Tuamotu lagoons on Tikehau, Manihi and Fakarava; now one of UNESCO's most valued biospheres.
The islands of French Polynesia have long been a melting pot of migrant peoples who have made the most of the ecology and geology of this region of the South Pacific to create sophisticated cultures.
For most people an overwater bungalow set in a turquoise lagoon is the essence of French Polynesia and the reason to travel thousands of kilomtres round the world for the ultimate romantic holiday.
One of the most successful uses of light is visible in the pearl industry in which French Polynesia has become a world leader. The most sought after pearls are from the farms on Taha'a an in the Tuamotus and you may even get a chance to see the incredibly rare black pearls.

Bora Bora is quintessentially romantic, renowned as one of the most charming and exclusive places in the world for honeymooners and seekers of perfect destinations. The elegant Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort is located on Motu Tevairoa, one of the white sand beach islets surrounding the Bora Bora lagoon, and therefore benefits from superb views back across the lagoon to the peaks of Mt Otemanu. On site there are two restaurants with great lagoon views, and a wealth of activities and excursions are available. The Polynesian-style bungalows are all air conditioned, and are either nestled in the tropical gardens, perched along the beach front, or over the lagoon itself with direct access to the water from your private deck. With regular shuttles available to the main island, you can choose to do as much or as little as you like in this little island paradise.
Bora Bora, known as the ‘pearl of Polynesia’, is just a 45 minute flight from Papeete, with silky beaches set against the emerald backdrop of Mount Otemanu: truly a perfect place for a South Pacific idyll.
