Overview

From kaleidoscopic lagoons to lavish overwater bungalows — French Polynesia holidays are out of this world.

French Polynesia has captured the imagination of travellers since the 18th Century and is one of the most quintessentially exotic destinations on Earth — think mesmerisingly blue coral reef, sprawling unspoilt jungle and secluded sugar-white beaches. It’s a highly coveted corner of the world with constellation-like groups of islands called motus, ultra-luxe and exclusive beachfront hotels and spectacular sweeping views. The journey there is lengthy, but take the plunge and you’ll discover the islands of Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea and Tetiaroa — all unique and breathtaking in their own right, and easy to combine as part of a cruise or round-the-world adventure. Visit your local store or speak to one of our experts, and we’ll help you create your perfect French Polynesia holiday.

French Polynesia holiday highlights

Head to Tahiti for spectacular beach scenery and an unspoilt interior of natural landscapes. Explore volcanic mountains, carved valleys, dense rainforest and cascading waterfalls, and enjoy watersports including snorkelling and scuba diving. Be sure to visit Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia and home to vibrant markets. Tahiti is also a convenient stopover before a trip to Bora Bora. The 'Jewel of the South Seas' is the epitome of a postcard-esque paradise, with its exquisite turquoise lagoon and romantic panoramic views over the extinct volcano Mount Otemanu at its centre. Just a short ferry ride or scenic flight across the water from Tahiti you’ll find Moorea, larger than Bora Bora but with a friendly, small island-feel. It has a fantastic mix of palm-lined coastline and craggy green peaks, with rainforest full of hiking trails. For ultimate VIP vibes on an untouched tropical island, Tetiaroa is in a league of its own. The most remote spot in French Polynesia boasts literally spotless white sand and was once Marlon Brando’s private atoll. His eponymous hotel is here — powered by sustainable resources including coconut oil and solar energy, it was recently featured on the BBC’s Amazing Hotels series and is an incredible getaway for big spenders.

Where is French Polynesia?

You’ll find this dispersed collection of isles and atolls in the South Pacific Ocean, around 5000 miles east of Australia. It comprises five distinct groups of islands; the Society Islands are furthest west and contain Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea and Tetiaroa. French Polynesia is about halfway between California and Sydney, and an eight-hour flight from the latter. You can reach Tahiti from the UK in around 22-24 hours with a single stopover in Los Angeles; internal flights to Bora Bora, Moorea and Tetiaroa all depart from Tahiti

Stay and cruise

A stay and cruise holiday is a fantastic way of seeing many of the French Polynesia islands in just one visit. Our cruise partners Paul Gauguin are specialists when it comes to cruising the shallow waters and lagoons that surround these spectacular islands, and their flag ship MS Paul Gauguin is based in the South Pacific year-round. As well as including an overnight stay of world-famous paradise island Bora Bora, they also own a small private islet, Motu Mahana where you can spend a whole day revelling in the tropical island ambience, with just your fellow guests for company. Break up your journey to French Polynesia with a few days in Los Angeles and even add a night or two at a beachside hotel in Tahiti, where the cruise departs from.

Insider Review
French Polynesia is at its best between June and August when the climate is at its driest and the weather is balmy, sitting comfortably in the high 20s to mid 30s Celsius. However, this can be a slightly busier time of year and the months either side of this period can see comfortable temperatures, but lower prices. Bora Bora resorts provide throw-over plastic raincoats which you can carry around, or use to literally 'duck' around the resort. These are especially useful during the wet season. ... But when we chose to celebrate Christmas and New Year in Bora Bora it began to rain two days after New Year. And rain and rain and rain. Staples & Specialities. Ma'a Tahiti, traditional Tahitian food, is a heavy mix of starchytaro and uru (breadfruit), raw or cooked fish, fatty pork, coconut milk and a few scattered vegetables. Languages: Tahitian and French(official) English(widely spoken) Tipping; not expected but can choose if you want to. The Polynesians are very religious, so dress appropriately if attending a church service, and if you visit archaeological sites, do not touch or move the sacred stones or tikis, these areas are of great spiritual importance.

Inspiration
One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. “What’s happened to me? ” he thought. It wasn’t a dream. His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls. A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. “How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was. He must have tried it a hundred times, shut his eyes so that he wouldn’t have to look at the floundering legs, and only stopped when he began to feel a mild, dull pain there that he had never felt before. “Oh, God”, he thought, “what a strenuous career it is that I’ve chosen!
