French Polynesia is one of the most popular touristic destinations of the Pacific Ocean. It is composed of 118 islands that cover more than 4000 square kilometers. Suggestive volcanic peaks, rugged cliffs and emerald green lagoons offer some of the most spectacular landscapes of South Pacific. On these islands there are picturesque stilt houses. It is a tropical paradise. Due to their distance and their appeal for celebrities and honeymoons, the islands are an exclusive destination.

 

What to see in Polynesia

Polynesia is rich in beautiful islands and dreamlike natural landscapes. If you book one of our cruises in Polynesia, you will have the opportunity to experience an unforgettable journey. With very white beaches, paradisiacal atolls and fabulous sea, French Polynesia offers unique scenarios to the thousands of visitors who decide to organize a trip in the remote French archipelago located in the South Pacific.

French Polynesia archipelago is divided into different groups. The main group is called the Society Islands, including the atolls of Bora Bora, Moorea and Tahiti. Tahiti is the most famous island in the Society Islands for the presence of the Tahiti Nui volcano and the vitality of the capital of Papeete. In Bora Bora, you will love the lagoon and the color of its waters, which make it one of the most spectacular atolls in the entire Pacific Ocean. In Moorea, instead, you can enjoy the sunsets that leave those who visit Polynesia for the first time breathless.

The archipelagos of French Polynesia certainly do not end up with the Society Islands. The Austral Islands, the Marquesas Islands, the Tuamotu Islands and the Gambier Islands are also with their own characteristics. You will find the most authentic Polynesia in the Austral Islands, while in the Marquesas you will lose yourself in the boundless beauty of the Hakaui Valley. And if you have a passion for snorkeling and diving don`t miss out on excursions to the Gambier Islands and the Tuamotu Islands.

Before suggest the best time to organize the departure, there are still some interesting facts about Polynesia to let you know. There are a total of 118 islands in French Polynesia with only 67 inhabited. This means that 51 islands are uninhabited. Reaching Polynesia means virtually reaching the end of the world. A total of 22 flight hours are required, including a technical stopover in Los Angeles. When you have arrived in this corner of paradise, you will have to set the 11 hour clock (12 if there is daylight savings time in Italy) back.

When to go to Polynesia

If you are interested in knowing the best time to visit Polynesia on a cruise, here you will find everything you need. The climate of Polynesia is tropical, with temperatures that remain constant throughout the twelve months of the year. Generally speaking, there are two types of seasons: one hot and wet, the other a little cooler and less rainy. If the most famous archipelago is taken as a reference point (Society Islands), the highest temperatures (slightly above 30 degrees) are recorded from December to April.

These months are also the wettest, since the rainfall will be from 205 to 275 mm every 30 days on average. Furthermore, from December to April, French Polynesia is exposed to hurricane danger. We therefore advise you to book one of the cruises in Polynesia from July to September, when the temperatures are more pleasant (28-29 degrees max.) and the rains are less abundant, with 4-5 days of rain on average in a month against 17 and 18 days of January and March.
