Learn about the history of the islands, meet the locals, or simply unwind on a beautiful beach.
Experience island life
There’s no better way to experience the culture of French Polynesia than passing through the small villages on an island tour. Follow 71 miles of dramatic coastal scenery on Tahiti, stopping at waterfalls, peaceful beaches and brightly coloured churches - a favourite among visitors for over 100 years. Alternatively, indulge in a helicopter tour for dramatic views from above.
Shop for Black Pearls
The world-renowned, iridescent luster of the perfect pearl is created in French Polynesia’s warm lagoon waters. Commonly known as Black Pearls, each pearl varies in size and shape and the colours range from dark black to shimmering tones of green, blue, bronze and even pink. Take a tour of French Polynesia’s first pearl farm on Manihi or visit one of the many pearl shops.
The home of the overwater bungalow
Since copied all over the tropics, the original (and best?) overwater bungalows and villas can be found in French Polynesia. Nothing beats the exclusivity of these hideaways that literally offer the warm lagoon waters and a myriad of marine life right on the doorstep.
