Personalities of the 5 archipelagos:

  SOCIETY Islands
composed of high islands bordered by immaculate turquoise lagoons, among which the Bora Bora lagoon has been called " the most beautiful lagoon in the world ". Sensuality and serenity.
This archipelago is 
divided into two groups:

  • The Windward Islands (Tahiti, Moorea, the Tetiaroa atoll, Maiao and Mehetia), gathered around Tahiti, the largest island in French Polynesia,also the highest and the most populated.
  • The Leeward Islands, more to the West and much appreciated by the tourists (Bora-Bora, Raiatea, Tahaa, Huahine, Maupiti, not to mention the uninhabited atolls of Tupai, Mopelia, Scilly and Bellinghausen).

  TUAMOTU and GAMBIER Islands,

Sparkling atolls, low islands shaped like coral rings with crystal clear waters. Unique aquatic fauna and flora.

  • more specifically the huge atoll of Rangiroa, and the atolls of Manihi, Tikehau, Fakarava, etc. And for the adventure minded, some fifty more islands to go play Robinson Crusoe
  • The Gambier Islands, Mangareva being the largest with its impressive lagoon.

  MARQUESAS Islands,

Spectacular Marquesas, high islands with sugar loaf shaped peaks, covered with luscious green nature imposing its rule. Uncommon arts and crafts
