For a country made up of 118 tropical islands, French Polynesia is considered a veritable heaven on earth.

Located in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, 16 000 km from France, the whole of French Polynesia encompasses a geographical area as large as that of Europe. French Polynesia is composed of 5 archipelagoes . Each one possesses its own cultural and geographical uniqueness. With lush island vegetation in the high islands and splendid turquoise-blue lagoons in its low lying atolls.
 
With its rich diversity, the possibilities of discovering its treasures are endless. There is a range of outdoor activities that will appeal to any type of visitor. From the adventure hiker to the passionate scuba diver and of course the unconditional sun-worshipper! There are various types of accommodations available, from luxury overwater bungalows to cozy family pensions, you will surely find the “home away from home” of your dreams.

The Polynesian people will welcome you with their legendary ”joie de vivre” and garlands of flower leis. Revel in the exotic dishes of Polynesian gastronomy with fresh flavours from the riches of the sea and exotic fresh produce from their “faapus” (small family vegetable or fruit garden patches).

You will have an unforgettable stay: restful for some, adventurous and exciting for others but filled with wonderful sights, sounds and flavours you will bring back home with you!
