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.

We booked two nights because our flight was changed. Staff arranged a private transfer from airport and was very pleased.
Wonderful property and views. Only issue was ensuring we could get back home and the resort weening off the services.
The villa’s were amazing. Very modern and newly designed. The food at the restaurant wasn’t the best. Need to update menus with more options and better tasting food.
This is heaven. Clean facilities, great amenities and more than helpful staff to help inanything you want.
We enjoyed our stay end of November 2019. Weather was perfect, some rain showers but mostly sunny or cloudy and always warm. The resort is closed now for major upgrades. All OWB will be completely new designed.
On Beautiful Black Sand Beach. Old hotel, but well kept up. Good Restaurant staff. food expensive, but the whole island is. Ok buffet breakfast, not great fruit. Good Dinners. Unfortunately we were there during a conference, so busy and under staffed.
The beautifully maintained property was exceeded only by the very friendly staff. We had a wonderful week and will return!
