Made up of sky-piercing, moss-green peaks and lined with vivid turquoise lagoons French Polynesia is a place like no other. The dreamy archipelago of 118 islands located in the South Pacific, is an ideal place to take it slow and experience warm, laid-back culture whilst on board a luxury crewed yacht charter. French Polynesia has so much to offer those that visit, with the main attraction being the astounding natural beauty of the place. Most of the islands are surrounded by fringing reefs that create a perfect home for marine wildlife. Fish, dolphins, rays, turtles, sharks and other species inhabit these clear-water coral habitats providing some of the most fantastic snorkelling and diving in the world. This underwater paradise is easily reachable from your personal yacht charter. For lovers of surfing, there are also plenty of opportunities to explore the surf, while kite surfers fly across the ocean with the trade winds. Finally, seeing Polynesia by boat is a wonderful way to get a taste of the indigenous way of life. The dances, music, and cuisine of the islands reflect their colourful culture and long history. Small communities are found on many islands, where tourists can interact with the welcoming residents and learn about their culture.
The Polynesian archipelago is a natural paradise for guests to enjoy a vacation on board a crewed yacht. Many of these islands are grouped into clusters, such as the Austral, Marquesas, Society, Tuamotu and Gambier archipelagos. Possibly the most popular for charters are the Society Islands, made up of the island jewels: Tahiti, Bora-Bora, Raiatea, Tahaa and Huahine. The Society Islands offer fantastic sailing winds and calm waters behind the many reefs that surround these islands. Each neighbouring island has its own unique character. More developed islands offer unbeatable dining and spa resorts and others offer your own private paradise in locations only reachable by boat.
It therefore comes as no surprise that French Polynesia is hugely sought after for weddings and of course honeymoons. Why not celebrate your love in your own private floating villa? Take the tender to remote beaches and stroll across the deserted sands hand in hand. A luxury crewed yacht charter really does provide the perfect foundation to start building memories for a lifetime as a married couple.
