8 days exploring French Polynesia on a luxury yacht

8 days exploring French Polynesia on a luxury yacht

1 of 8 1/8
 Tahiti in French Polynesia
Day 1


Sculpted by sky-piercing, moss-green peaks and lined with vivid turquoise lagoons, there are endless reasons to discover the French Polynesia on a superyacht.

Consisting of 118 idyllic islands, French Polynesia stretches over an expanse of more then 2,000 kilometres in the South Pacific Ocean. Here is a guide on how to spend eight days discovering Tahiti and beyond on a luxury yacht.

Day one: Tahiti

Begin your cruise in the waterfall-laden, beautiful black sand beaches that give Tahiti a distinctly Polynesian buzz. While exploring the lively backstreets and the waterfront of the capital Pape’ete is a must, it’s the outdoor action and cultural offerings that capture visitors.

See and do: From July to October whale-watching is a popular and unique attraction. Also in July there is the country’s most spectacular festival, the dance-heavy Heiva which fills the air with the sound of drums. For a slower pace visit Tahiti Iti – a peninsula on the southeast of Tahiti. So far it is only known to surfers and is one of the hidden gems of French Polynesia.

Dine: At Blue Banana a hip lagoon side restaurant or dine on-board

Overnight: At anchor.

This itinerary is suggested by Burgess who manage sailing yacht Mondango 3 for charter, she is available in the French Polynesia this summer.
