The Islands of Tahiti

Located in the Pacific Ocean, The Islands of Tahiti are a mythical destination. The mention of Tahiti calls to mind visions of an idyllic island paradise and once you visit, you’ll discover that your imagination isn’t too off the mark. Secluded, tropical and lush, these islands are a universe where dreams meet reality.

Society Islands

From the country’s main island, Tahiti, across to her enchanting sister island, Moorea, then up to Marlon Brando’s Tetiaroa paradise atoll, these Windward Islands are tropical dream islands! Choose between the various land/water activities or just relax by the pool. There is something for everyone in The Islands of Tahiti.

Tuamotu Islands

The Tuamotu Islands consist of 77 atolls spread over 930 miles (1,497km) and the area certainly lives up to its reputation. These islands, located at the the edge of the world, are literally heaven on Earth. Coconut plantations cover the motu (islet) of the coral barrier reef, the pristine beauty of the lagoons and unique underwater world make the Tuamotu a very unique group of islands.

Gambier Islands

Located more than 994 miles (1,600 km) southeast of the island of Tahiti and at the end of the Tuamotus, this archipelago is the most remote and also the least populated region of French Polynesia. Counting only 1,000 inhabitants, it shelters four mountainous islands lying within the same lagoon: Mangareva, ‘Akamaru, ‘Aukena and Taravai, with dozens of islets, called motu.

Marquesas Islands

Legendary high cliffs, volcanic peaks, impressive remnants wrapped in wild nature, amazing beaches: the Marquesas are breathtaking. Located 932 miles (1,500km) away from Papeete, they offer the traveler a trip of a lifetime. The Marquesans call their islands “Land of Men,” or “Te Henua ‘Enana.”

Austral Islands

As their name implies, the Austral islands, located south of The Island of Tahiti, on the Tropic of Capricorn, represent the southernmost boundary of French Polynesia. The climate is cooler than in Tahiti and the shape and ecology of these self-sufficient islands make them a charming world apart.
