Bora Bora, the Romantic Island

Bora Bora lies150 miles northwest of Tahiti in the Leeward Society Islands, and is for sure the most magical of all the French Polynesian islands. The main island of Bora Bora, where the mythical Mount Otemanu pierces the sky, is in the center of an azure lagoon, surrounded by offshore motu islets inside a protective coral necklace. Lush tropical rainforests and valleys of exotic flowers, white sand beaches and palm covered motu, as well as gorgeous crystal clear waters, home to muliticoloured fish and manta rays, make this island the perfect nest for romantics and honeymooners. The overwater bungalows offer a unique experience and add to the incredible charm of a vacation in Polynesia. Bora Bora's lagoon is world-famous for its beauty.
The motu islets of Bora Bora are the ideal location for a honeymoon. Bora Bora has numerous luxury hotels and resorts. Hotel Bora Bora was the first Hotel in French Polynesia to build over water bungalows. No matter what kind of vacation you are planning, Bora Bora is a must when visiting French Polynesia.
There is only one navigable pass, facing the principal village of Vaitape. An18 miles partially sealed road circles the Bora Bora island, passing through colorful villages, archaeological sites and lush landscapes.

Bora Bora island is possibly the most famous island in the world. Lush tropical rainforests, white sand beaches and palm covered motu surrounding the island and the gorgeous azure lagoon, make this island the perfect nest for romantics and honeymooners... Bora Bora is love at first sight.

TahitiTahiti, Queen of the Pacific

Tahiti, often called the island of love, is the largest of all French polynesian islands. Deep valleys, waterfalls cascading into cool rivers and streams hide between the beautifull moutains, overlooked by majestic peaks. The flat coastal lands, are planted with fields of tropical flowers and home to most of the island's population. Tahiti's beaches vary from black sand beaches on the north east coast and white sand beaches on the south west coast. Papeete, the capital, is the place to shop for authentic souvenirs at the great local market

MooreaMoorea, the Bay Island

Crystalline lagoons, home of dolphins and rays. Waterfalls tumble down the steep pineapple covered mountains. Volcanic peaks rise high above the tranquil waters of Cook's Bay and Oponohu Bay. Peaceful meadows and gardens of hibiscus, birds of paradise and many more exotic plants will renew your belief in the majesty of nature. Less than ten minutes away by air from Tahiti, Moorea is ideal for a day's visit.


Big IslandHuahine, Garden of Eden

Huahine, picturesque, with its lush rainforests, rich and fertile soil growing abundance of vanilla and bananas on the slopes of a very diverse and dramatic geography, is one of Polynesia's best kept secrets. A scenic road winds around the two small islands that compose Huahine, through charming villages, beautiful vistas of crystal-clear lagoons, rich with sea life, where lie motu islets bordered by white sand beaches and coconut trees. Maeva village is a wealth of archeological sites that go back to 1000 years. The spell cast by Huahine will last a lifetime.


LanaiRaiatea, Taha'a

Far less traveled then Bora Bora or Moorea, these two sister islands offer an experience of a true unspoiled Polynesia. They share a wonderful lagoon rich in sea life, and ideal for sailing, scuba diving and outrigger canoeing.

Raiatea, meaning "faraway heaven", also called "The Sacred Island", is the cultural heart of all Polynesia and holds much fascinating history, legends, as well the most significant archeological sites.

Taha'a, filled with a rich aroma of vanilla lingering in the air, is "The Vanilla Island". This flower shaped island charms us with the simple beauty of its soft mountains and surrounding of tiny motu on the endless lagoon. Taha'a still maintains an authentic flavor of Polynesia.



Life on these remote atolls is simple and normally quiet and peaceful. In the small villages the visitor can discover the true flavor of the Tuamotu, often participating in the daily activities of the Paumotu people. The interior lagoons are a haven for black pearl farms, fish parks, snorkeling and scuba diving.

LanaiTikehau, Remote, Beautiful, Magical

Tikehau, considered to be one of the most beautiful atolls of Polynesia, is a graceful crown of pink-sand beaches. In this pristine world, fish seem to outnumber people. The interior lagoons are a haven for black pearl farms, snorkling, exploring the Isle of Birds and enjoying endless hours of kayak ballads encountering rays, exotic fish and coral gardens. The local people, friendly inhabitants of the small village of Tuherahera, invite you to share their world beyond imagination.
