From the Society Islands to the Tuamotus... pf

..., French Polynesia has a big diversity of maritime coasts.

Extremely varied in their contours and with or without passes (linking the waters of the lagoon with those of the ocean) or hoa (passes with shallow waters), they all have similar geological and biological features: more or less circular in shape, they present an extremely steep edge, beaten by the waves of the ocean, on which the coral structure is formed that is the origin of the cliff, and they shelter at their centre a sub-marine life of exceptional abundance. Not forgetting the superb, white sand beaches, shaded by coconut trees that decorate each of their motu

• Society islands 

Tahiti: Tahiti will unveil its beauty and can be explored in many different ways: black sand beaches on the East coast, white sand beaches on the West coast, diving, beginner’s and mythical surf spots, mountainous peaks within desert lush valleys..

- Moorea: Cut by a couple of majestic bays, Cook’s Bay and Opunohu Bay, the lush mountainous landscape contrast with the crystal clear blue lagoon.

- Bora Bora: Bora Bora is a volcano set on one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world, declining infinite shades of blue, from the clearest to the deepest. The huge motu of white sand beaches lined with coconut trees circle the emerald lagoon populated with a myriad of fish and corals of amazing colors.

- Tetiaroa: It is a small atoll without a pass and a total area of 33km2, hosting 13 motu (islets) covered with coconut trees. It is the perfect image for a tropical post card: long and deserted bright white sand beaches lined with coconut trees, turquoise waters and an absolute quietness
