Scattered across the Pacific Ocean, French Polynesia is an enigmatic collection of archipelagos within an archipelago, defined by translucent lagoons, soaring volcanic peaks and long streaks of beach. Our specialists have journeyed across the islands, which cover an area larger than Europe, exploring the main sights as well as seeking out lesser-known corners. They’ll carefully plan a French Polynesia holiday to suit your interests: whether you’re after a tranquil getaway, or a more adventurous experience.
Overwater bungalows stand above a neon-blue sea, where you find pristine coral and thousands of varieties of marine life. Inland are jagged mountain peaks, virgin rainforests and laid-back villages. Ancient Polynesian culture still underpins everyday life here, reflected in a rich collection of songs and dance performances, traditional cooking methods and the tiare flower tucked behind the ear. Each island has its own charms, from the art galleries of Bora Bora to hiking trails through Tahiti’s jungle.
