Where is French Polynesia? 

French Polynesia, casually known as the Islands of Tahiti, is a collection of 118 islands in the South Pacific Ocean. They’re located approximately halfway between Australia and California and are a part of the French overseas territory.

Many of the islands in French Polynesia are inhabited, making them the perfect location for a luxury trip in paradise.


Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia and truly brings to mind an idyllic tropical island escape. It boasts everything from black sand beaches to diving under the surface and discovering the marine life that awaits.

While you’re in Tahiti, make sure you visit popular spots, like The Three Waterfalls or Les Trois Cascades, the white sand beach of La Plage de Maui, and check out Teahupo‘o, famous for being the birthplace of surfing. You can also explore Papeete, the island’s capital, for amazing shopping, fresh food, and local culture. After a day of exploring, retreat to your luxury yacht for a beautiful sunset and later, a delicious dinner under the stars cooked by your private chef.

Bora Bora

Bora Bora is probably the most famous island in French Polynesia, which makes it a perfect addition to your yacht itinerary. Formed from an extinct volcano and surrounded by a stunning blue lagoon, it boasts some of the most jaw-dropping natural scenery in the area.

While you’re visiting Bora Bora, you can go scuba diving, relax on the beautiful Matira Beach, or hike up the ancient peak of Mount Otemanu. Of course, when you stop by this island during your yacht charter , you can also spend time relaxing in an ambient atmosphere with the finest champagne in hand.


Raiatea is the nautical centre of French Polynesia, an absolute must-visit while exploring French Polynesia on your professionally crewed yacht. Aside from amazing swimming, snorkelling, and diving, this island is also a cultural and historical hub. It’s famous for the Taputapuatea place of worship, which is several worship platforms that have been restored to their former glory.

Raiatea is also known for its traditional island cuisine, so make sure you try some of the local delicacies during your visit before heading back to your comfortable yacht for the night.


The volcanic island of Mo’orea looks just as mesmerising in real life as it does in pictures. This island isn’t as well known as Tahiti, but in terms of natural beauty, Mo’orea is the clear winner. As you approach the island, your eyes will be drawn towards the eight mountain peaks rising from the sparkling lagoon, and chances are you won’t be able to tear your gaze away.

On Mo’orea, you can swim or snorkel in the lagoon, swim with sharks in the Lagoonarium, or make the most of local beaches like Tipaniers Beach or Tema’e Beach If you want to enjoy the tropical surroundings in solitude, then head over to Coco Beach Island for a truly secluded island experience and a decadent beach picnic


If you want to rest and rejuvenate during your superyacht charter, then you should visit Tetiaroa. This tiny island was the private property of Tahitian royalty and then Marlon Brando, for many years. This is a stunning location perfect for the end of your itinerary offering luxury, environmental awareness and ample Polynesian culture to create a truly memorable experience.
