PICK YOUR PARADISE
From just hearing the word “Tahiti,” an almost mythical vision of thatch-roofed bungalows floating over brilliant turquoise waters come to mind, creating a dreamy image of sheer paradise. Although it may seem all too picturesque to be true, the tropical islands of French Polynesia are an authentic escape.
Also known as the Islands of Tahiti, the isles of French Polynesia dot the open Pacific Ocean in 5 distinct clusters with each group of islands offering their own unique scenery and experiences for you to pick your paradise. The main islands, including Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora, are known as the Society Islands. While equally beautiful, each island provides a variety of opportunities.
Choose from snorkeling the warm lagoons, hiking through untouched forests in search of pristine waterfalls, tasting fresh fruit picked from the vine, appreciating the colorful island culture, lounging on white or black sand beaches, all while staying in luxurious properties over the waters.
