In the South Pacific Ocean floats French Polynesia. It is a country that comes under France and is between California and Australia. Five archipelagos make up the 700 square kilometers of French Polynesia.

Things To Do In French Polynesia

There are many popular archaeological sites in the islands to explore, starting from Iipona, Kamuihei, Tahakia, Teiipoka.

Do something that famous explorer Cook did; he anchored in the Cook’s Bay; there is nothing particular you can visit here. But the historical importance makes it unique. Throughout the islands, you will come across Marchè de Pape’ ete or the marketplaces.

The shops here have chunky necklaces made from shell( pretty right?), woven hats to guard you against the glaring tropical sun, and fresh local produce. And the best part of here are the gorgeous white sandy beaches- the famous one is Tereia Beach.

Best Time to Visit

Summer in French Polynesia is Hot and humid and lasts from November to April. In the month of January, there are thunderstorms.

Even though the temperature range is 26 degree Celsius, there is nothing to worry about because the hotel rooms have air conditioners. The winter months see a mild drop in temperature, but cooler temperature is always welcomed in tropics.

How To Get Here

The citizens of some countries from the European Union do not need a visa or passport for their stay. Any form of identity proof is enough for any length of stay. Faa’a International Airport is the major airport in Tahiti.

Due to the location of the islands flying is only one of the two options, the other one being – cruise ships. It runs from Hawaii, New Zealand, Panama and Australia.

Type of Electricity

The Type A (Two flat pins ) and Type B ( three flat pins) sockets work in French Polynesia. And plug A works with both of them, so buy an adapter accordingly. Appliances with a voltage of more than 110 V need a transformer to work here.
