Tahiti – a tropical getaway

Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia and its beauties are certainly worth your time. It’s home to numerous green valleys, crystal-clear streams and high waterfalls which will leave you absolutely breathless. This is the perfect place for a family holiday as Tahiti offers different exciting activities and facilities for entire families, such as guided hiking and boating excursions, large swimming pools, sandy beaches, etc. It’s no secret that Tahiti is one of the most luxurious destinations in the world, so it can be quite pricy. However, there are ways to travel on a budget as well. For example, instead of booking an extremely expensive hotel, go for a family pension. This way, you’ll have a chance to spend more time with local people and learn a lot about their culture as well.

Tetiaroa – a true luxury experience

Tetiaroa is a magnificent atoll located in a group of French Polynesian islands. It used to be a popular vacation spot for Tahitian royalty and today it’s mostly known as a private island purchased by Marlon Brando for $200,000. He was truly thrilled by the Polynesian way of life, and inspired by the peace he used to feel while sitting on the coast at night. This island is home to numerous luxury resorts, including the unique Brando resort, where you can enjoy yourself on beautiful private beaches savouring cocktails and traditional dishes. Thus, it’s not surprising at all that the former US president Barack Obama chose exactly this spot to write his White House memoirs.

Moorea – it’s time for an adventure

Another paradise on Earth you’ll come across in the vicinity of the islands of Tahiti and Tetiaroa is the stunning island of Moorea. This place is well-known for its turquoise lagoon, luxurious accommodation and traditional restaurants, where you’ll have the chance to try some of the most popular Polynesian dishes prepared by eminent chefs. You should go to the northwest corner of the island where the Hauru Point is located. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to try out snorkelling, or just lie down while soaking up the sun on an amazing sandy beach. However, if you’re an adventurer, the Le Tiki shark-feeding centre is exactly what you’re looking for. Remember, no matter which activities you choose, this trip will stay in your memory forever.

Maupiti – perfect for true romantics

Maupiti is a small coral atoll with a volcanic island in its midst, located 25 miles west of Bora Bora. This island is perfect for newlyweds and all romantics who want to escape the world, since this island is the smallest and most isolated one of all the Society Islands in French Polynesia. Here, you’ll be able to take long walks down the beach during sunset, and  even try out something new and exciting, like surfing and kite-boarding. Finally, there is no doubt that Maupiti is an island with unprecedented beauty, which will offer you the warmth and peace you’ve been craving for a long time.
