One Week in French Polynesia
When you have only one week to spend in French Polynesia it is imperative to maximize your time. What islands you visit and where you stay on each will depend on budget, but for one week in French Polynesia we like doing a night on Tahiti, three on Bora Bora or Moorea (if you can afford an overwater bungalow, by all means splurge!), and three nights in the Tuamotus. Each locale offers a distinct French Polynesian experience and makes for a romantic and well-rounded week in the South Pacific.

Magic Mountain, Moorea

Large arrow left

Spectacular view from the top of "Magic Mountain," which is truly magical. You can only access this through 4 wheel drive or ATV. We went up on ATV's (using Albert Tours) which was a ton of fun! The road is narrow and steep but offers a magnificent vantage point to see the mountains and the absolutely gorgeous clear blue water of Moorea. We happened to be up at the top just as the sailboat was passing through the channel on yet another beautiful day...
