Geographical Situation

Polynesia is a far-off French territory, famous for its beautiful landscapes, the Tahiti pearl and the vahines (Tahitian word for « woman »).  It often evokes an unreachable dream, a paradise at the world’s end.

If you ever go there, you will find turquoise and crystal-clear lagoons, coral reefs, multicoloured fish and small black-point sharks that swim lazily in the lagoon.
