Adventures are plentiful in the French Polynesian Islands. Better known by the name of its main island, Tahiti, French Polynesia is a mesmerizing wonderland of reef-fringed islands and translucent aqua lagoons. Tahiti covers over two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean and is comprised of 118 islands spread over five great archipelagos. Visualize an area as large as Western Europe yet the total land mass of all the islands adds up to an area only slightly larger than the tiny state of Rhode Island.
The three archipelagos most sought by visitors are
♥ the Society Islands: Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea and Taha’a
♥ The Tuamotu Atolls include the atolls of Rangiroa, Manihi, Tikehau, and Fakarava
♥ Marquesas, or “The Mysterious Islands.”
Most of the accommodation are on just three islands: Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora. The Tuamotu Group is popular with scuba divers while The Marquesas are for avid explorers and adventurers.
The two other archipelagos, the Austral Islands and the Gambier Islands, lie to the south and the southeast, respectively, of the Society Islands. While very few travelers venture to these remote islands, those that do are not disappointed by the pristine environment.
