A South Pacific yacht charter opens up a fantastic discovery of the islands of French Polynesia. It’s no accident that so many writers and artists have landed on one of the 118 islands of French Polynesia and found it impossible to leave. The aqua lagoon of Bora Bora is as strikingly blue as its reputation suggests, and so clear that you can dive for coral and witness an encyclopaedic show of tropical fish. Life proceeds slowly with a decided French accent, adding to the allure. Like Gauguin you can drop out and feel entirely disconnected from the world. Your yacht charter in Tahiti will take you on a journey around these spectacular islands of the South Pacific Ocean.
Why Go: The most beautiful water in the world contrasted by jagged mountains and a French inflected island lifestyle.
When to Go: May-October
Essential Ports: Moorea, Huahine, Bora Bora, Maupiti, Raiatea, Tetiaroa, Huahine and Tahiti.
Local Favourite: Heiva in late June, a festival of dancing and other festivities putting islanders in touch with their roots (and giving them an excuse to throw a three week long party).
