It doesn't get much more remote than French Polynesia, but if there's any truth to the maxim that the harder the journey the better the arrival, this place is nigh on unbeatable.

Katie and Rachel are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • It's hard to imagine anywhere else in the world with so many opportunities for 'desert island bliss'. Believe it or not, one of the best ways to get the best out of the fabled island of Bora Bora is actually not to stay on the fabled island of Bora Bora. Sound odd? Give us a call and we'll explain all
  • Outside of the Society Islands (home to Bora Bora), is the relatively unexplored Tuamotus, covering half of the square mileage of Polynesia. Here you'll find Tikehau, a coral atoll with an 80km circumference, obligatory white sand, turquoise water and palm trees. Even better, Tikehau has a tiny population and just a couple of hotels.
  • It combines perfectly with other Pacific Islands, New Zealand, Australia or even California

Original Highlight

Nothing prepares you for the ridiculous blue of the Bora Bora lagoon as you step out of the airport. The mountain on the inside of the lagoon looks like some sort of Hollywood backdrop. Top tip: sit on the left hand side of the plane from Moorea/Tahiti and Huahine for the best views.

A note on price

We’d always recommend combining a visit to Polynesia with another country, but assuming you had 10 days and only wanted to visit Polynesia, you could expect a fantastic combination of two islands to cost approximately £3,100 per person including flights. Learn more about our pricing

We have used OT for many years now and you seem to have a great team. But what has been most impressive with you is your speed of response, the accuracy of your information and the fact that you really make us feel you listen to our wishes and adapt itineraries to suit.
