Society Islands

French Polynesia's main island chain, popular with the majority of visitors, is the Society Islands chain, which comprises of  the islands of Tahiti, Moorea, Huahine, Raiatea, Tahaa, Bora Bora, Tetiaroa and Maupiti. All these islands have a high central mountain core with coastal plain areas, white sand beaches and coral reefs.

 

Most of the major resort hotels are to be found in the Society islands, with the most popular being Bora Bora, Moorea and to a lesser degree, Tahaa, Raiatea and Tahiti itself, which is where the main international airport, and the local seat of government is found, in Papeete town on Tahiti island.  Huahine is probably the least visited by tourists, and offers a more rustic charm than 5* luxury, with Tetiaroa being a private island with just 1 luxury resort that is most definitely opulent.

Where to eat on the islands

All the resorts will have their own restaurant or dining options on site, but if you want to explore and try some other local dining establishments, HERE are some restaurants that you might like to try on Moorea and Bora Bora.  You get to experience a different menu and island ambiance, and the restaurants are always very welcoming and grateful for the business.

Tetiaroa

Tetiaroa

The private Island of Tetiaroa is the closest Atoll Island to Tahiti laying just a short 35-minute flight north of Tahiti. If a stay on the island is not of interest then we would recommend a day trip from Tahiti.

 Raiatea

Raiatea

Raiatea is the second largest Island in French Polynesia, located 120 miles north-west of Tahiti. A partially paved road circles the island winding through fertile valleys and wide flatland, past farms and orchards. Inland tours reveal lush green valleys, pineapple and vanilla plantations.

Tahaa

Tahaa

Taha'a is the most mountainous of the Society islands so much so that there is not enough flat coastal plain land for an airport to be built so one has to fly to Raiatea than take a boat transfer.

 Huahine

Huahine

Comprising of two main islands, Huahine nui (big) and Huahine iti (little) which are joined by a narrow isthmus. Both are enclosed within a necklace of coral. The lagoon, bordered by white sand beaches, is rich with sealife and off-shore motu islets which lie within the barrier reef.
