The Place for Romance (French Polynesia)
The Place for Romance
Within the five archipelagos, there are several islands which are the most sought after by visitors. They include Tahiti, moorea, Bora Bora (photo 2), huahine, raiatea, and Taha’a. on these islands, you can enjoy lagoons of warm, bright-emerald waters, and white, coral-sand beaches. The number one reason the islands of Tahiti are perfectly suited for romance is the “alone time” couples can enjoy during their stay. intimate resorts, small peaceful villages, and miles of quiet pristine beaches afford couples with valued seclusion.
Tahiti is famous for its over-the-water bungalows. These bungalows are a perfect hotel room. imagine sleeping above the turquoise waters in a thatched-roof hideaway with all the amenities and service of a first class hotel. The only sounds heard are the soothing lagoon waters and the occasional splash of fish below.
if a bungalow is not your thing, there are numerous resorts offering luxurious accommodations. manava Suites resorts, moorea Pearl resort and Spa, huahine Te Tiare Beach resort and Spa, and Tikehau Pearl Beach resort are some to consider. and the Polynesian spas are the ultimate in true relaxation and rejuvenation.
Enjoy snorkeling and diving in the warm, crystal-clear lagoons and swift ocean passes with schools of beautifully-colored fish, docile sharks, and giant manta rays. Take a voyage within the legendary South Pacific aboard luxurious cruise ships, super yachts, or passenger freighters that travel among Tahiti’s most beautiful islands.
There are many other reasons that make Tahiti so special, including the Polynesian people, whose love for their island is seen through music, dance, and their hospitality. Perhaps the most special reason to visit the islands of Tahiti is to simply do nothing but enjoy the true sound of silence. only in French Polynesia can one enjoy such seclusion, beauty, and serenity.
it is easier than you might imagine traveling to Tahiti. Tahiti’s Faa’a airport is under 8 hours by air from los angeles lax airport, with daily nonstop flights. 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.
