Spend a romantic holiday or honeymoon ensconced in paradise in Tahiti and Bora Bora in French Polynesia, where 118 islands are sprinkled across four million square kilometres of crystalline turquoise waters. “Aita pea pea”, translated as “not to worry”, is the philosophy here, and it couldn’t be more fitting.
Nowhere screams private luxury more than this remote jewel of the South Pacific: a watery world of reefs and archipelagos where fruit trees rustle in the breeze and powdery white sands swathe the shores of secluded atolls.
The largest island, Tahiti, is perhaps the most well-known, with two majestic mountain ranges carpeting its verdant expanse. Meanwhile, exotic Bora Bora is perfect for a luxury honeymoon, and Moorea offers an alluring mixture of black and white sand beaches.
Thanks to a tropical climate, spend your days in Tahiti and Bora Bora luxuriating in balmy temperatures. Go trekking through valleys cut by deep waterfalls and over ridges and summits, or switch land for water and dive into the colourful marine world that fringes each island. Unearth historic marae (religious sites) that hark back to the pre-colonial days, or surf your way around the coasts and let the trade winds swoop you across this picture-perfect paradise.
