Six reasons to visit French Polynesia

Six reasons to visit French Polynesia

Reason 1 –  THE PEOPLE

The locals here have genuine smiles and are truly warm and welcoming.  Although the official language is French, we found that most people could converse in English (or at least enough to get by with visitors) and didn’t seem to mind that we couldn’t speak a word of French.

Reason 2 –  THE WEATHER

It gets hot here….but it doesn’t get cold.  Enough said. This means minimal packing!

Reason 3 – THE FOOD

Can you think of anything better than French blended with Polynesian ? The seafood is fresh, the fruit is tropical, and there is French bread served with every meal.  Whilst it’s not budget prices, it’s not really overpriced to eat here either.

Snorkeling is absolutely amazing here (from the eyes of a beginner).  I was lucky enough to snorkel every day in both Bora Bora and Moorea .  Visibility on both islands was fantastic and it was a completely different experience on each island so you don’t really get sick of it.

Reason 5 – THE SCENERY

This is the sole reason you can’t get French Polynesia out of your mind when you leave.  The beautiful turquoise, aqua and blues of the water and sky blending is truly amazing on both Bora Bora and Moorea.

Reason 6 – THE HISTORY

French Polynesia has an interesting history and there are also visible remains of the Tahitian culture in its ‘Marae’.  These are scattered across the islands and are basically open air places of worships.
