French Polynesia

When you picture an island paradise, you are probably picturing something that looks a lot like French Polynesia. This island nation is located in the Pacific Ocean, approximately an eight hour flight from California. Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea are the most familiar islands to travelers and also the most developed, though they are still quite relaxed and far from overly commercial. Some of the lesser known islands are ideal for those who want a truly remote escape. Deep blue lagoons, brilliantly colored tropical flours, lust green mountains, luxurious resorts boasting overwater bungalows and the seclusion of its location make French Polynesia a popular destination for honeymoons and romantic getaways.
