The Society Islands are lands doomsday and havens of the South Seas, so there is no time to get bored. People usually come here in their private jet charter for they honeymoon or wedding anniversary to relax and enjoy the turquoise waters of the stars or islands like Tahiti and Bora Bora.

But you can also choose to explore the many islands that make up the archipelago of the Society Islands. One of the five islands that make up French Polynesia is divided into two groups: the Windward Islands composed among others by Tahiti and Moorea and the Leeward Islands, consisting of the famous Bora Bora and Tupai.

On these islands, the interior is as impressive as the crystalline sea. Get ready to enjoy nature walks, to swim in waterfalls and picnics which Robinson against the sunset.

Bora Bora -Tahiti

The Pros

• + – The image of the idyllic “fare” on stilts has been virally around the world.

• + – Lagunas on one side and mountains on the other. It has everything: sporting and relaxing holiday.

The Cons

• – There are very good hotels, but overall the hospitality is old.

• – The destination is especially distant and it will be very expensive. The islands suffer direct competition from the Maldives or the Seychelles, who enjoy the same image of earthly paradise.

Polynesia also provides an exceptional setting for honeymoons. In fact, tour operators are aware and offer discounts and benefits to the newlyweds. Hotels proposals are composed of a typical accommodation in bungalows of different categories, from a comfortable 3 star to luxury 5 stars.

Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora, the three islands of the archipelago vedette, are three very different islands. Discover them bystaying on the beach, on a cruise or in a combined stay.

If you dream of a 100 % polinesas vacation, stay in a private home. Surely you will end up sleeping on a fare with a green roof next to a lagoon. It is the best way to live life the Tahitians.

As for time being, you should know that the hot season (November to March) corresponds to the period of the rains. The best time to travel is between May and October. Among all the nautical activities proposed by the big hotels, you cannot miss the mini cruise sailing (generally catamaran) for the day or late afternoon to see the sunset. There is no better way to enjoy the wonderful island views. You can also rent a boat with or without skippers.
