French Polynesia
With 118 islands and atolls spread across five distinct archipelagos, French Polynesia has versions of paradise for every traveler. Most stick to Tahiti and the Society Islands, like Mo'orea and Bora Bora, but if you venture a little farther afield you'll find stunning experiences in the Tuamotus and ultra-remote Australs. From black pearls to world-class scuba diving, waterfall hikes to epicurean and cultural adventures, French Polynesia will keep you entertained, should you tire of lounging on white-sand beaches, sipping coconut drinks, and staring at the most amazing azure and turquoise sea.
