Papeete (Tahiti), French Polynesia


Is there any other single word that does more to evoke images of the ultimate tropical paradise than Tahiti? No wonder the men of the HMS Bounty abandoned their ship in favor of basking on her shores. Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia and its urban center has much to offer visitors. Take a stroll through the new Jardins Paofai, watch the surfers on their longboards, marvel at Faarumai Waterfalls, the Blowhole, Fern Grottos or simply relax on one of Tahiti’s famous black sand beaches.

Moorea, French Polynesia

Lesser known than her sister island Tahiti, you'd be hard-pressed to find better than this gem of an island. Breathtakingly beautiful, stunning landscapes await, from the verdant mountains to the azure lagoon and white sand beaches. Take a canoe ride through the lagoon; snorkel, scuba or helmet-dive the reefs, or hike up to the Afareaitu Waterfalls.

Tropical Reef

Fakarava, French Polynesia

Pure, pristine and dreamlike, the ecosystem of this gorgeous island is home to extremely rare birds, plants and crustaceans. Quaint villages, old coral churches and welcoming people are intertwined with a spectacular lagoon creating a paradise like none other in the world.

Rangiroa, French Polynesia

This gorgeous South Pacific atoll is a "natural aquarium,” with its lagoon filled with colorful undersea life. Visit the pearl farms, dive with manta rays, explore the atoll's unique winery or just choose a calming respite on a pink sand beach.

Bora Bora

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Majestic mountains sculpted by ancient volcanoes, a shimmering lagoon, sugary sand and a barrier reef dotted with tiny motu, or islets - welcome to Bora Bora, perhaps the most breathtakingly beautiful island in the South Pacific. Snorkel, swim with the manta rays or enjoy an outrigger canoe ride through the lagoon and its lovely coral islands.

Raiatea, French Polynesia

You'll notice the rich scent of vanilla the moment you step off the ship onto this stunning island, with its vanilla plantations scattered throughout. Visit one or two, visit a pearl farm, snorkel the clear waters of the surrounding reef, or take a kayak trip along the Faaroa River.

Huahine, French Polynesia

"The Garden Island" is filled with easily accessible pristine white beaches kissed by emerald waters; you can rent a bicycle and explore the island, take a boat to the hanging oyster beds to see the black pearl farm, or go on a shark-feeding excursion.
