Tahiti and her Islands

Known for their beauty, these 118 South Pacific islands are formed from five archipelagos, located in an ocean about the size of Europe. French influence is evident everywhere, from the language to the architecture, dining and shopping experiences.

Tahiti is the heart of French Polynesia and home to both the capital Papeete and Faa'a International Airport. Tahiti's sister island, Moorea, is famed for its luxuriant vegetation and white sand beaches, whilst Bora Bora boats a spectacular lagoon, tropical underwater world and mountainous hinterland.
