These islands need to be on your 2019 bucket list
The Islands of Tahiti encapsulate the picture-perfect and remote island holiday that many of us dream of. Beyond the famous islands of Bora Bora, Tahiti, and Mo’orea lay more than 100 other islands just as beautiful, and begging to be explored.
Adding some of the lesser-known islands to your 2019 travel wish list will certainly make it your most magnificent year yet…
Locally known as the ‘garden island’, the island is enchanting and inspires visitors thanks to its mystery and seclusion. With the highest proportion of ancient Marae within The Islands of Tahiti on Huahine, as well as the ancient fishtraps that have surrounded the island for hundreds of years, the island is a magnificent blend of authentic culture mixed with environmentally respectful modern living.
Rangiroa is simply idyllic. It’s the second largest atoll in the world, from a birds eye view it looks like a jeweled necklace – and once on ground, it’s an absolute gem. With pastel pink and pillow soft sand on its 240 motus that surround the lagoon, the small areas of land glide into the crystal clear water, which is a natural aquarium. What’s more, Rangiroa means ‘endless skies’ and the views reflect just that – you’ll feel like you’re on a deserted island, which adds to the captivating atmosphere.
Recognised by UNESCO for its unique environment and biosphere, Fakarava is a place where the evolution of natural resources and human activity has been harmonious and un-disruptive. Meaning ‘beautiful’ in Tahitian, Fakarava transforms the way visitors see the world, it opens your eyes to the true natural beauty that our planet can offer. With charming accommodation in sync with the surroundings, guests can stay in beach bungalows or family pensions and can expect a very warm welcome from the locals.
Of the 118 Islands of Tahiti, each and every one has its own unique allurement. Whatever you may wish for from your 2019 holiday, you will find exactly what you’re looking for in French Polynesia.
