French Polynesia

To the average person, the country of French Polynesia doesn’t usually conjure up any thoughts other than a 10th grade world geography class. Bora Bora on the other hand…now that’s a name that everyone recognizes. Well, Bora Bora is actually one of the islands that make up the islands of French Polynesia.

There’s no getting around what makes this island so popular to tourists. Its beauty is unmistakable and nearly unmatched by any other island in the world. The beautiful blue waters wash up to shores that are mostly surrounded by forests. In many places, these forests suddenly rise up, turning into mountains with near vertical cliffs.

Although it is an official territory of France, the country has some of its own self-governing powers, including its own president. France mostly controls things like currency, foreign policy, and a few other things. Visitors will be able to pick up on the French influences as well as see places where the French and English battled over the territory for years.

Whether you’re looking for something similar to a resort, or trying to just enjoy a scenic get away, French Polynesia will definitely not disappoint.
