French Polynesia holidays 2023 & 2024

Moorea, French Polynesia

Translucent lagoons, volcanic peaks, and long streaks of beach are the key ingredients of French Polynesia, an enigmatic collection of archipelagos within an archipelago adrift in the South Pacific. Our specialists have journeyed across these islands, which cover an area larger than Europe, exploring the main sights as well as seeking out lesser-known corners. They’ll carefully plan a French Polynesia holiday to suit your interests, whether you’re after a tranquil getaway or a more adventurous experience.

Overwater bungalows stand above a neon-blue sea, where you’ll find pristine coral and marine life species in their thousands. Inland lie serrated mountain peaks, virgin rainforests and laid-back villages. Ancient Polynesian culture still underpins everyday life here, reflected in a rich collection of songs and dance performances, traditional cooking methods, and the tiare flower tucked behind the ear. Each island has its own draws, from the art galleries of Bora Bora to hiking trails through Tahiti’s jungle.
