    Honeymoon in Polynesia: white coral islands in the Pacific

    According to the travel news and this travel blog, the place is situated in the air Oceania Eastern Polynesia is a region made up of several islands of the Pacific Ocean. Let’s start with this little definition to avoid the confusion which exists between this region and other areas of the planet, such as the Maldives. The name Polynesia in fact does not indicate a specific group of islands, but a whole area where there are several individual islands and archipelagos (even including Hawaii). These Islands are often the destination of newlyweds. Polynesia offers spectacular atolls characterized by the presence of lush vegetation in a lagoon surrounded by coral reefs.

    A honeymoon in French Polynesia requires at least 15 days for two reasons: first, to have the opportunity to stay, or at least stay in more than one island, since the 5 main islands are composed of 118 islands in total, each with different characteristics. In addition, air travel is quite long and you have to cross 12 time zones to reach the airport in Papeete, Tahiti’s main town and capital of French Polynesia. Fortunately,  that’s not without making a stop a stop: Italy can reach the island via Paris with Air Tahiti Nui down to New York or Los Angeles, or increasingly via Paris with Air France with a stopover in Los Angeles, or Air New Zealand from London, Frankfurt or Los Angeles. The experience of the honeymoon will be complete with a visit to one of these cities before landing on the beaches of white coral, which are crystal-clear: The marine life is superb and snorkeling and diving will find their paradise.

    There are so many activities to do there, besides the water- related ones: numerous trips are made specifically to explore the interior of the islands and the remains of the ancient Polynesian civilization. For this reason it is better to know exactly what to take with you, not only light cotton clothing, which is  good for the days of hot sun, but long pants and something heavier for the cool days of the lagoon. I always recommend sun-protection cream and lotion mosquito repellent, and as far as  the beach is concerned, sunglasses and rubber shoes for walking on the reef. During the year the temperature reaches about 27 °, but the best time to go is from April to October, when the rain is less frequent and the climate is so humid. Even the water of the lagoon is so hot that you can swim safely next to the magnificent marine animals that inhabit the reef. Or make a trip on a Va’a, a typical Polynesian canoe: it is also the protagonist of an annual competition, the Hawaiki Nui Va’a, which takes place in October between the islands of Bora Bora, Tahaa, Raiatea and Huhaine , and attended by 2000 athletes from around the world.

    The three islands mentioned above are some of the most beautiful luxury resorts, hosting a fairy tale, where the five star treatment assumes a higher dimension, and relaxation is assured. If you want to indulge in some activity, snorkeling with sharks in Bora Bora is not to be missed and swimming with dolphins at Rangiroa is a wonderful experience. So for spouses who promised to get married within the year, value Polynesia for your honeymoon!
