You might know her as Tahiti, but she’s not the only beauty in French Polynesia. There’s also Bora Bora, Morea and plenty more paradisiacal islands just waiting to wow you with their turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, and untouched rainforest. And talk about remote! These 118 islands are spread out over five archipelagos and four million square kilometres.
Some of the islands are buzzing with locals, resorts and travellers. Others are hardly more than sandy wave breaks on top of coral reefs. Whether you visit one, the other or both, get ready to slow things down and relax. Everything runs on island time here, so kick back and have a cocktail. Once you book one of our French Polynesia holiday packages, the islands will be there for you to even out your suntan. Don’t forget to flip over! Stuff to Do
If snorkelling or scuba diving aren’t on your list for French Polynesia, you’re missing out. See colourful reefs and tropical fish through crystal clear waters above sandy ocean floors—we bet you’ll be able to find Nemo and all his friends! Of course, just enjoying a dip in the warm lagoon waters with our French Polynesia packages is a pleasure, too.
If looking at all those pretty fish got your stomach grumbling, charter a boat and throw a line in. You could haul up tuna, mahimahi, or bonito. If all that sounds like a lot of work, then skip it. Just find the nearest hammock and rock away under a swaying palm, listening to those rhythmic waves splash in and out. Doing stuff is overrated anyway. City Life
So where’s all the action in paradise? Stick to the Society Islands. These include Bora Bora, home to opulent resorts; Tahiti, with “big” capital city Papeete; and quiet, unassuming Morea. Grab one of our Tahiti car rental options and explore the island. Nosh on local cuisine such as tahitienne, raw fish marinated in lemon juice and coconut milk, or the Chinese-influenced ma'a tinito, a pork dish with macaroni and cabbage. Enjoy them both at a tamara'a Tahiti, or Tahitian-style feast, along with pork, breadfruit and banana leaves. Wash it down with a tinny of that famous Hinano Beer.
Want something to remember your trip by? A black Tahitian pearl is always a good choice. This is the only place in the world they grow, so get one for that special someone on holidays to French Polynesia. Where to Visit
When you’re ready to travel off the beaten path, there are four more archipelagos to enjoy. The Tuamotu Islands are made of coral reefs and have some of the best snorkelling and diving. The Marquesas Islands rise steeply out of the ocean. Enjoy meeting wild goats, horses and pigs on hikes. The Gambier Islands are less visited on French Polynesia holidays, but give you the chance to see what happens when a former volcanic crater erodes into separate islands over time. And for some of the last uninhabited islands in the South Pacific, check out the volcanoes of the Austral Islands.
Can’t wait to see the Pearl of the Pacific ? We don’t blame you! You won’t have to search oyster after oyster to find it, either. Not with Wotif’s French Polynesia package deals, that is. We’ve put them all in one place (including Tahiti holiday packages !), so finding a good one is like a day at the beach. See you on the lagoon!
