A fantasy world of blue lagoons, hibiscus flowers and jungle-coated mountains, this Pacific archipelago is one of the most magical places on Earth. Here’s why a holiday to French Polynesia should top your bucket list, and when it’s the best time to visit.

The islands of French Polynesia are spread over an area the size of Europe. There are countless places to go within the archipelago, from uber-luxe Tahiti to diving mecca Bora Bora. Charter a yacht to visit the remote Tuamotu Islands, immerse yourself in the rich culture of the Marquesas Islands, take a dip in the clear waters of Raiaea or drive a 4x4 into the mountainous interior of Moorea. With 118 islands to visit, you could spend a lifetime of holidays getting to know this tropical paradise.
