To land in the Islands of Tahiti is to stamp paradise in your passport. A vacation here can mean relaxing on unspoiled beaches, discovering archaeological wonders, challenging your mind, body, and spirit with sporting activities, or sleeping in the shadow of Hollywood royalty.
With so many islands to explore, no two of which are quite alike, French Polynesia offers many surprises beyond its largest island and common namesake, Tahiti. This island is a good choice for budget travellers, or those who’d rather learn about the local Polynesian culture than relax on the beach. From browsing local handicrafts to tucking into some of the My ’s freshest food truck cuisine at Les Roulottes, there’s plenty here to engage the senses. It’s also a great introduction before basking in the luxury of the resort islands.
Bora Bora is the shining star amid the Islands of Tahiti. The iconic peak of Olemanu rises from verdant slopes, all surrounded by the atoll’s flawless lagoons. Yet the island of Moorea holds its own as one of French Polynesia’s most popular honeymoon choices. It too offers sublime beaches and colourful reefs, along with eight mountain peaks ideal for tropical hiking. Some of the lesser known islands offer their own delights, including Huahine, famed for its range of watersports and sacred sites steeped in legend. On less ‘touristed’ islands such as these, staying at a guesthouse can take Polynesian luxury and the seclusion of the islands to another level.
If you do fall in love with the Islands of Tahiti (and how can you not?), you’ll be in good company. Marlon Brando was so enamoured with the island of Tetiaroa, he purchased the whole island. His love affair is immortalised today in The Brando, an eco-luxury resort with a touch of movie star glamour.
