French Polynesia is the perfect ‘get away from it all’ island escape. Here you can swim amongst giant manta rays, or go diving to discover sunken ships. Make sure to see the wildlife inland too, with a private guided trek or horseback ride. And for the ultimate luxury, why not have a private picnic on your own tiny islet in the lagoon. 

Palm-fringed white sands, towering mountain peaks, teeming coral reefs, and 118 islands to explore. 


Capital city: Papeete.

Currency: Cour de Franc – referred to as the franc (in 500, 1000, 5000, 10000 notes).

Cuisine: The national dish is poisson cru – raw red tuna marinated in lime juice and coconut milk.

Tipping etiquette: It’s not expected, but polite to do so.

Saying hello: Simply use the French, “bonjour”.


The weather is idyllic all year round, with the slight chance of a cooling tropical shower in any month. You’ll find the warmest temperatures from May to October, but during other months there will be fewer people and more seclusion. If you travel here in July, you might catch the Helva Nui, an exciting dance festival. 

To say ‘I do’ in French Polynesia you need to be resident for 30 days. Many couples marry at home, then travel here for a traditional beach ceremony.
