About French Polynesia
French Polynesia is a French overseas country found across a series of islands in the South Pacific Ocean. The Polynesian islands are well known for their combination of mountainous landscapes cut with valleys and beaches with reefs, making this a highly attractive country with many stunning natural features.
The westernmost islands, known at the Society Islands, are the most populated, and the diving opportunities here are second to none, with beautiful coral reefs and lagoons ideal for snorkelers and scuba divers alike. Tahiti and Bora Bora are among the most famous islands, and the French Polynesian capital lies on Tahiti. If you are looking for a unique local souvenir, French Polynesia is particularly famed for its high quality black pearls, so you can pick up some exquisite jewellery here.
