ABOUT THE FRENCH POLYNESIA - SOCIETY ISLANDS...
French Polynesia covers over two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean and is comprised of 118 islands spread over five great archipelagos. Many islands are crowned with jagged peaks while others appear to barely float above the breaking waves. It’s the kind of place where the rich and famous come to play and hedonistic honeymoon fantasies are realized.
Adventures are plentiful in these archipelagos that are scattered over an area as big as Europe. Easier to travel to than you might imagine, As far south of the equator as Hawaii is north, Tahiti is halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America, and in the same time zone as Hawaii.
The three archipelagos most sought by visitors are the Society Islands, comprised of Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea and Taha’a. Unlike any other properties in the world, the luxury hotels and resorts of the French Polynesia offer a perfect combination of experience, service, dramatic views, cuisine, ambiance, and posh accommodations.
Moorea is a magical island. The mountains rise up high above the sea, only to disappear again into the shallow lagoon. Waterfalls plummet down cliffs and towering pinnacles rise high above you. This is a beauty you will never forget. On the island there are both white and black sand beaches, which is quite unique among the Society Islands. Come and experience the magic of Moorea for yourself!
ABOUT BORA BORA
Bora Bora – Unquestionably the most mythical of the Pacific islands remains the island of all dreams. So much has been written about Bora Bora, and yet it is hard to find the right words to describe the magic that emanates from this island.
Seen from the air, the view has been compared to that of "a tiny emerald in a setting of turquoise, encircled by a sheltering necklace of sparkling pearls". The airport, built by US forces in 1942, is located on a palm fringed motu about 20 minutes by boat from the main village of Vaitape. The view of the main island from the airport is truly breathtaking, and as you travel across the spectacular lagoon you will soon understand why it is the main area of attraction for most visitors.
As with All International Fun Happenings Trips... I am working with a local Tahitian tour company- so our group will fully immerse ourselves into the local culture and experience a side French Polynesia- that tourists rarely see!
