The islands of French Polynesia are an alluring mix of local Polynesian culture and French influences, with incredible scenery and unspoilt cruising grounds. French Polynesia is home to nearly 120 islands and atolls, making it perfect for exploring by water. This “overseas country”, belonging to France, is made up of five main island groups, namely: the Tuamotu islands, the Gambier Islands, the Marquesas Islands, the Austral Islands, and the Society Islands (made up of the Windward Islands and the Leeward Islands). Tahiti, located in the Society Islands, is the biggest island and one of the best known and most populated – it is home to the capital, Papeete, and almost 70% of all inhabitants of French Polynesia.
French Polynesia is a truly idyllic destination. Lush tropical islands, clement weather, white sand beaches, incredible dive spots, fresh and vibrant food and beverages, and an authentic welcome from the local population are just some of the many attractions that this cruising ground has to offer. One of the very best activities on offer lies beneath the waves – the diving and snorkelling is world class and spending some time under the water is a must do. Hop from island to island on your own private yacht and fall under the country’s spell. Book your own French Polynesia charter and explore paradise for yourself.
