French Polynesia is fittingly called the best place to celebrate and kick off your new life together after the wedding. More than 100 small islands enchant every visitor with their calm romantic beauty and exhilarating splendor. Covered with emerald-green forests, the islands float in the turquoise ocean waters seducing your mind and senses.
If you travel to French Polynesia, visiting Tahiti is inevitable as the only International airport is located on this island. Tahiti is the biggest island of the whole group and perhaps the ‘coolest’ one. This is why French Polynesia is often synonymous with Tahiti itself.
This island perfectly represents an incredible and unique mix of two opposite cultures – that of Polynesia and France. This combination can be vividly seen everywhere in Tahiti: in luxurious hotel service, fine restaurants, even in the street architecture! This is the only place where you can feel it, and if only for this atmosphere, it is worthwhile to travel to French Polynesia and Tahiti.
What makes Tahiti even a better honeymoon resort is its people. Always friendly and helpful, smiling and cheerful, they’re ready to share with you their happiness and joy of living in such a paradise. So do not feel confused or shy when you are offered a glass of pineapple juice and presented with a fragrant garland of flowers upon your arrival. Tahitians are very hospitable and these gestures welcome you to their dreamy paradise.
French Polynesia, and especially Tahiti are a perfect honeymoon destination for those who seek privacy and seclusion. Did you know that on average, Tahiti is visited by fewer tourists in a year than Hawaii in just 10 days?
