French Polynesia is made up of 130 islands scattered across five archipelagos. The Society Island group which is the most popular includes the islands of Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora and Marlon Brando’s Tetiaroa paradise atoll. The Tuamotu Islands with popular islands like Rangiroa, Tikehau and Manihi offer pristine beauty and a unique underwater world which is perfect for snorkelling and diving. The outlying Gambier Islands, Marquesas Islands and the Austral Islands make up the remainder of French Polynesia and offer breathtakingly wild nature and beaches.
As you might expect to find in remote pacific islands, there are many intriguing stories to hear about local legend, early exploration and colonisation. Hear about the introduction of vanilla and the development of the pearl industry, now both major exports and core to Tahitian culture.
