French Polynesia


French Polynesia, with its towering green peaks and vivid turquoise lagoons is an idyllic location to kick back, relax, and enjoy the warm hospitality.

Known for its stretching white, black and pink sand beaches, the true wonders of French Polynesia are the vast lagoons. With many of the high islands framed by a reef, a natural and protected swimming pool is created, reflecting the most intense blues and aquamarines imaginable. The French Polynesian coral atolls are equally superb, boasting the same calibre of beauty. Fish, dolphins, sharks, rays, turtles and more call these clear-water coral gardens home. Equally popular with divers as they are with snorkellers, these coral lagoons are truly a little piece of paradise.

Just the thought of French Polynesia brings to mind images of dancers in grass skirts, hibiscus flowers, and warm humid winds gently rustling palm trees grazing the turquoise waters. While the ancient tales from explorers who had reached these far-off lands included imagery of a simple life, fertile lands, and bountiful riches, the modern day French Polynesia retains these dreamlike ideals. The trees are still laden with fruit, the mountains rise as majestically as ever and the lagoons are just as blue. But the ideal paradise has been interspersed with the modern day world, with highways criss-crossing the green mountain tops and the notoriously hospitable French Polynesians embracing visitors from around the globe.
