Where to go in French Polynesia, whether you’re looking for an idyllic honeymoon escape or family-friendly tropical island activities. 

Everywhere in French Polynesia has a castaway island vibe like nowhere else on Earth, and there’s a surprising amount of variety on offer here. You could be hiking through untouched rainforest up to lofty island viewing points in Moorea; tagging along with turtles under the water or whizzing across it on a jet ski in Tahiti; practicing beachfront Polynesian music and dance on the exclusive atoll of Tetiaroa; or taking a dip in a gleaming lagoon direct from your private sun deck in Bora Bora. All four islands are captivating, laid-back and luxurious.
