Many of the activities on offer in French Polynesia focus on the endless blue lagoons of the region. You can take a sunset cruise aboard a catamaran to Bora Bora to dip your toe into the island’s history, or hire your own skipper and take off for a few days on a chartered yacht. Inland, the islands also offer plenty of things to see and do. You can traverse the mountainous interior of Moorea by 4x4, hike to waterfalls lost in forested valleys (and swim in their plunge pools), and try exotic fruits on a walk with a local guide, who’ll also regale you with local legends on visits to enigmatic Tiki sites.
