Please, take that extra step to paradise and be rewarded many times over by the central jewel in the South Pacific crown. Exploring in French Polynesia, which lies at the very heart of the Pacific Ocean, is the ultimate in romantic yachting and, best of all, there are several excellent luxury French Polynesian yacht charters available.
With 118 volcanic and coral islands spread across the South Pacific, French Polynesia is a glorious destination to visit on board a superyacht. This natural utopia is all about the ocean, so a yacht is the perfect medium for this venue. Glide through beautiful lagoons, take in the magnificent scenery of volcanic peaks and explore quaint villages like Patio. You can also climb mountains for even more spectacular views.
The awesome harbour of Marina Apooiti gives yacht charterers the opportunity to drop anchor to enjoy gourmet restaurants and lively bars. Raiatea is the second largest island in French Polynesia with amazing green valleys full of vanilla and pineapple plantations. Enjoy the splendid waterfalls and tropical lagoons that are full of marine life and coral.
You’ll find some of the world’s best dive sites off the coast of French Polynesia. These must-do scuba dives can be found off the islands of Bora Bora, Tahiti and Moorea to name but a few. The cruising grounds and shores of Tahiti, Raiatea, Tahaa and Fakarava all offer something different, from snorkelling to diving, exploring lagoons on kayaks and sailing dinghies. Sample world-class surf on the stunning beaches like Matira Beach (Bora Bora), Tereia Beach (Maupiti Island), Punaauia Beach (Punaauia) and Nahoe Beach (Hiva Oa).
The all year-round trade winds and mild climate makes French Polynesia a fabulous superyacht charter destination. When sailing in the calm waters of the South Pacific, island-hopping is great fun. Expect plenty of adventure, dramatic volcanic scenery, incredible wild life and a warm welcome from the traditional island communities. The ocean is alive with sea turtles, sharks, dolphins and more than 500 species of fish. Among the coral reefs and stunning lagoons, there is an array of marine life, shipwrecks and drop offs just waiting to be explored.
During your superyacht charter vacation to French Polynesia soak up the atmosphere and discover hidden treasures on the Austral, Marquesas, Society, Tuamotu and Gambier archipelagos. Bora Bora is well worth a visit. Drop anchor in Bora Bora Harbour and explore this fascinating island. It was formed out of the crater of an extinct volcano. With the main island rising from a turquoise lagoon, lots of colourful coral around and low-lying atolls, this island will certainly take your breath away.
