THINGS TO DO IN FRENCH POLYNESIA

activities

Faq?

There are no direct flights from the UK to French Polynesia. The quickest and easiest route is from London to Los Angeles with Air New Zealand, and then on to Tahiti with Air Tahiti Nui.

September is the best month to visit as the weather is dry and warm and peak tourist season is drawing to a close.

We recommend a minimum of 6 days.

As French Polynesia is an overseas collectivity of France, UK citizens do not require a visa to enter the country.
