It’s the land of over-the-water bungalows, water as clear and still as glass, with colorful sea life teeming just below the surface. Remote, romantic, utterly luxurious. This is French Polynesia, a dreamy region in the South Pacific. For many, a Tahiti honeymoon represents the ultimate romantic escape for two. But are you familiar with the other stunning islands that make up French Polynesia? If you’re looking to jet off to paradise for your honeymoon, use this post as you guide to the region’s most romantic islands for honeymoons and just-for-two escapes:

Tahiti Honeymoon Tips

Tahiti’s main city of Pape’ete is considered the bustling capital of French Polynesia — relatively speaking.

If you move on to any of the beautiful islands in the region, you’ll first fly into Pape’ete. While Tahiti has name recognition, its development and lack of white sandy beaches doesn’t actually make it the best island for honeymooners who are looking to get away from it all.

But before you whisk yourselves away to another island, however, do spend some time exploring the island’s breathtaking waterfalls and mountains — perhaps best explored on a 4-wheeler excursion!

Bora Bora Honeymoon Tips:

Bora Bora is most likely exactly what you picture when you think of a South Pacific or Tahiti honeymoon — the softest white sand imaginable, luxury bungalows that seem to float above the water, and truly endless ocean views.

In fact, U.S. News named it “the best island in the world.”

Bora Bora has its share of luxury resorts catering to couples and honeymooners, as well. We love to send clients to the Four Seasons Bora Bora. This stunning resort has the classic over-the-water-bungalows you’ve been dreaming of, as well as top-notch spa services. In fact, the resort boasts a spa suite that rises above the water, whose clear glass bottom allows you to watch the incredible array of fish swim by below.

Moorea Honeymoon Tips:

Just 10 miles from Tahiti, this magical island feels worlds away. You can thank the dramatic outline of eight volcanic mountains and a deep blue lagoon for that.

Another reason Moorea may just be your ultimate honeymoon destination?

When viewed from above, the shape of the island resembles a heart! Moorea is the perfect escape for couples who yearn for a combination of adventure and relaxation. You can lounge in your luxury over-the-water bungalow, and then snorkel in the lagoon, feed rays, go golfing on one of only two courses in French Polynesia, and hike through the mountains and past pineapple plantations.

Huahine Honeymoon Tips:

Looking for a way to truly get away from it all on your honeymoon?

Then Huahine is your answer, as it’s one of the smaller and more remote islands in French Polynesia. In fact, there’s just one over-the-water bungalow resort on the entire island! That means it might just feel like you have this entire slice of paradise all to yourselves.

If you vacation in or visit Huahine on your Tahiti honeymoon, be sure to explore one of the eight villages on the island. Since Huahine doesn’t get quite as many visitors, villagers are extra welcoming here.
