Islands

Bora Bora

So much has been written about Bora Bora that it’s hard to describe its magic. Novelist James Michener wrote that Bora Bora is “the most beautiful island in the world.” It certainly makes the most dramatic first appearance, especially if you arrive by air. Surrounding the small island is the most stunning multi-shaded blue and turquoise lagoon in all of the South Pacific.

Moorea

Many people have described Moorea as the most beautiful place on earth, and it’s this magical island that inspired James Michener to write about mythical “Bali Hai.” Moorea is only 11 miles from Tahiti, and one of the features that is so striking about this island is the jagged peaks and spires that give the island its unique profile.

Tetiaroa

Tetiaroa is part of the Society Islands in French Polynesia and is considered an extension of the Arue commune. Fittingly, the island name is a Polynesian word meaning “stands apart” or “at a distance.” The inner lagoon, which is only 3 miles wide, is completely enclosed and protected by 13 surrounding coral islets.
