Plan your Trip

Welcome to French Polynesia

A tropical paradise found on earth, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea and more than 100 islands define the natural beauty found in the blue waters of the South Pacific Ocean. Allow a mountainous beauty and inviting hosts to allure the senses when journeying through of coral atolls and islands. Take a dive in clear waters and enter an underworld throbbing with colorful marine life. Walk through tropical forests before a dip in a lagoon. Or kick back on a spotless beach and enjoy these idyllic surroundings with a fruity drink in hand. It’s all here, waiting to enchant you.

Popular Attractions in French Polynesia

Taputapuatea marae

One of the most enchanting parts of French Polynesia, the Taputapuatea marae is home to luscious valleys, translucent blue waters, and a sacred site of the mā'ohi people. A religious and public center where the mā’ohi people used to engage in rituals honoring nature and their tribes, the Taputapuatea is spiritual—the perfect combination of nature and history.

Belvedere Lookout

Discover the scenic island of Moorea from Belvedere Lookout. A unique view of two bays—the Cook and Opunohu Bay—awaits you here, not to mention the possibility of hiking through the hazy jungle. Whatever you do, make sure you take your binoculars—and hiking shoes.

Notre Dame Cathedral, Papeete

This 19th century church is the oldest Catholic church in Tahiti. Built in a French colonial style, the interior of the church incorporates a mélange of both European and indigenous elements, including a mustard façade which shines in the sunlight. The Way of the Cross and the Madonna inside are definitely worth a snapshot.

Opunohu Bay

Opunohu Bay is situated north of Moorea Island, affectionately known as Tahiti's little sister. From July to October, humpback whales emerge from the coastal waters and, with a little luck, provide the perfect photo opportunity. You can also discover remains of the secluded nooks and crannies once inhabited by old Polynesian tribes, the perfect place to catch some sun and enjoy the breeze after a long walk.
