French Polynesia provides an extraordinary sailing experience. consisting of over 100 islands dispersed over 2.000 kilometres in the south Pacific. The islands are a very long way from anywhere and they feel like it. The pace of life is slow and relaxed.
As a sailing ground the islands are superb. The atols, caves and coves of the islands provide endless variety and exploring the islands by boat is the obvious — and best — way. Sailing between the islands is uncomplicated and each island offers its own distinct blend of remarkable tropical flora and fauna, often against a dramatic volcanic mountain. The natural beauty of the place is breath-taking and it is easy to understand why an artist like Paul Gaugin, spent so much of his creative life there. It helps you to see the world in a new light – literally.
French influence, with local culture and practice, combine to offer discreet luxury. Food at restaurant in marinas and anchorages is excellent, again, combining the best of local and French influence.
If you want to combine a yacht charter with getting away from it all, you can’t get further away from it all than French Polynesia.
