Flights to French Polynesia

Halfway between California and Australia you’ll find the paradise that is French Polynesia. Turquoise waters, rugged islands, and beautiful coral reefs make it the perfect place to kick back and relax for a few weeks. The islands are split into five groups.

The Society Islands are where most of the people are, and are home to the popular islands of Tahiti and Bora Bora. The Tuamatu islands are a coral archipelago, perfect for scuba enthusiasts, while the Marquesas Islands are known for their rugged mountains and wildlife. The Gambier Islands and Austral Islands don’t get much traveller attention, so are worth a look if you enjoy going off the beaten track.
