French Polynesia’s islands fascinate with their jagged peaks, palm tree-lined beaches, blue-green lagoons and tropical rainforests. Dive with sharks, tour ancient temples, journey through forested valleys and relax on a beach with a cocktail.
Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia. Visit Papeete, the capital city, for markets, museums and shops that specialize in Tahitian black pearl jewelry. Trek through the Fautaua Valley for the 985-foot (300-meter) Fautaua Waterfall. Take the children to Maui Beach to swim in the shallow water. Go on a four-wheel-drive tour through valleys and rainforests and along the coast. Stay in an overwater bungalow on stilts above the sea.
Most of the islands are surrounded by lagoons, providing ideal settings for water pursuits. Charter a boat for deep-sea fishing. Scuba dive or snorkel in the vast lagoons of Tikehau and Fakarava. Experienced divers venture under the water to study the behavior of different shark species, such as white tip lagoon sharks. Embark on a dolphin and whale-watching expedition from the island of Moorea. Take part in a range of watersports including jet skiing, surfing, windsurfing and kayaking.
Reserve time to visit the other islands. Lounge on Bora Bora’s secluded beaches and see prehistoric temples on Moorea. At the pearl farm on Huahine you’ll see how French Polynesia’s famous black pearls are cultivated.
The volcanic and coral islands of French Polynesia lie in the southwest Pacific Ocean. Most visitors reach the tropical getaway by flying into Tahiti, the only island with an international airport. Travel between the islands by chartered or scheduled flights or by boat.
With a tropical climate, temperatures are warm throughout the year. One of the best times to visit is between May and October when the temperature is comfortable and rainfall is scarce.
French Polynesia is a popular vacation spot, particularly with honeymooners, offering a good combination of excitement, relaxation, beaches, nature and adventure.

The sand infinity pool in addition to the huge infinity pool was also a nice surprise. The Tahitian show ...
The staff was really nice. Only really odd thing was that the WC was in a different room than the shower and the sink, so you have to walk from one to the other (through a hallway, not far, but maybe 10 feet appart)
Super friendly and helpful staff. Very luxurious and well maintained five/star resort. Immaculate. OWB was huge and luxurious. Super fast WIFI. Best hotel we have stayed so far in Tahiti.
Great views from large room but room was very musty and overall rooms need updating. Helpful staff and for Tahiti good value.
The location is fantastic if you need a hotel before or after a flight. It's right across the street from the airport. Very easily walkable but note, there's a hill to climb if you're walking to the hotel from the airport (or descend, if you're walking to the airport from the hotel). We were allowed ...
Hotel/Resort stunning. Room was amazing especially view and layout/facilities. Buggy service to/from room was slow. Food prices expensive but in line with expectations. Drink prices (esp. cocktails) however were absurdly expensive especially as hotel staff did not understand wine (red wine chilled ...
