French Polynesia, a Dreamed Reality in the South Pacific

French Polynesia

French Polynesia is a paradise of 118 islands in the South Pacific Ocean.

This tropical destination, half way between California and Australia, is an oversea country of France which has attracted many explorers. Bougainville, a French admiral, described it as a paradise on earth. It is not surprising that James Cook travelled to see this wonderful land and it very easy to understand why the famous French painter Gauguin got inspired by the amazing landscapes and women of these lands.
Visitors go through diverse sceneries such as blue lagoons, gorgeous valleys crossed by rivers and waterfalls, leafy crests leading to incredible summits, white sanded hidden creeks and much more.

The best period to visit these enchanting archipelagos is between April and October, during the dry season, the Austral winter. The summer, from November to April, is very warm and humid.

The Society Islands, encircled by coral reefs and lagoons, are the less densely populated islands and the most beautiful. Bora Bora, Huahine, Maupiti, Raiatea, Moorea and Tahiti are truly picturesque and unrealistic. Tahiti is the largest island and also the most popular.

Polynesian people are very welcoming, warm and generous. Visitors fall in love with locals’ smiles and the peaceful way of life, the motto of the islands be ‘aita pea pea’ meaning ‘not to worry’.
