French Polynesia is made up of 118 dispersed islands which include some of the most sought-after, luxury honeymoon destinations in the world.

Out of the 67 inhabited islands in French Polynesia, honeymooners will struggle to find even one that doesn’t feel like utter paradise. There really is no better place to sit back, relax and enjoy some of the world’s most scenic and breath-taking views of island life and the ocean surrounding it.

A lot of the islands such a Bora Bora, Huahine and Taha’a are housed with stunning resorts that couples can retreat to for some serious luxury pampering – and you can even stay in a hut that sits on top of the ocean! The dreamy surroundings and picture-perfect views feel like something out of a brochure, you really will have to pinch yourself.

If you love sports and want to embrace local French Polynesian culture, why not try your hand at va’a – the traditional Polynesian sport which is practiced in all 67 inhabited islands. It’s so popular, there’s even an international race (Hawaiki nui va’a) helf between Tahiti, Huahine and Bora Bora.

As well as va’a, there are a range of other water sports that couples can enjoy whilst on honeymoon in French Polynesia including diving, snorkelling, surfing and even kitesurfing. The waters are so calm and crystal clear, it’d be almost criminal not to spend time in them.

It’s not just luxury on these islands too, there’s culture to dive into as well as clear blue seas. From the Robert Wan Pearl Museum in Papeete to the Museum of Polynesian Culture (Musée de Taiti et des Îles) – there are plenty of ways to educate yourself on the surroundings for when lying on the beach gets too…exhausting.
