Maupiti Island

Tropical paradise doesn't get more surreal than on Maupiti Island, a volcano perched on a coral atoll and surrounded by a horseshoe of forested land.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Thu): don't miss a visit to Le Palais de la mer and then kick back and relax at Tereia Beach. Keep things going the next day: see some colorful creatures with Maupiti Diving and then get outside with Mt. Teurafaatiu.

Papeete, Tahiti

The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.

There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, examine the collection at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie, take in the dramatic scenery at Faarumai Waterfalls, and contemplate the waterfront views at Point Venus.

French Polynesia travel guide

4.4
Scuba & Snorkeling · Gift & Specialty Shops · Waterskiing & Jetskiing
Spanning an area of the South Pacific as large as Western Europe, French Polynesia includes 118 islands and atolls scattered across the blue ocean. White sand beaches (and pink and black) skirt rugged island peaks, while magnificent coral reefs form tranquil lagoons, dyed a startling blue and teeming with fish, eels, dolphins, rays, turtles, and sharks. The names Tahiti and Bora Bora conjure up images of private thatched bungalows built out over a lagoon, and couples silhouetted against the sunset. That said, a wide range of family-run hotels and bed and breakfasts offer less extravagant (and surprisingly affordable) experiences that take in more of the laid-back local culture.
