Distant tropical destinations such as French Polynesia are looking more inviting than ever now that the winter has finally arrived. We especially like small secluded islands where you can have white sandy beaches all to yourself. Te Tiare Beach Resort on the island of Huahine in French Polynesia is a secret getaway with fewer tourists that the well-known Tahiti and Bora Bora.
Things to Do
Once you reach the island resort, an array of vacation activities opens up. Scuba diving and snorkeling in the South Pacific is not to be missed. Watch colored tropical fish, rays, sharks an moray eels swim in the ocean. Snorkel right in the island's turquoise lagoon, or sign up for an excursion with a picnic. Te Tiare Beach Resort offers complimentary outrigger canoes, kayaks and snorkeling equipment.
Another popular activity are sailboat or motorized outrigger cruises which are convenient for getting to know the island. You can visit Huahine's historic sites, tropical valleys and ancient fish traps by Land Rover tour. Car, scooter and bike rentals are also available.
Other island vacation activities include glass bottom boat rides, deep sea fishing and horseback riding.
Best for Privacy
Private motu picnics are are a great way to spend the day if you want privacy and seclusion. Motu are tiny islands separated from the main island, surrounded by blue waters and sand. Grab your snorkeling gear and spend the day surrounded with nothing but sand, tropical fish and water.
Garden Bungalow rates start at US $320. All inclusive meals plans are offered starting at $136 per person per day. Find out more about Te Tiare Beach Resort, how to get there, and plan your island vacation getaway.
