French Polynesia is widespread (about 118 islands and atolls) and about the size of Europe. It belongs to the French overseas territory and is divided into five categories: Australia, Gambia, Maxus, Society and Tuamotu Islands. Before being settled in Europe, the French-Polynesian archipelago was inhabited by Polynesians and organized in loose chieftains.

About 160 miles northwest of Tahiti and about 2,600 miles south of Hawaii, Bora Bora was discovered in 1722 and is arguably the most beautiful island on Earth. The island's old name, Vava'u, implies that the original inhabitants of this 7-million-year-old island come from Tonga. The volcano was created on the main island Bora Bora and the islands as well as on some small islands, which are surrounded by coral reefs.

Culture in French Polynesia

Many of the traditions and oral traditions of Tahiti can be traced back to their mausoleum ancestors, including bamboo sheds that still house the roof of Pandanus, and the colorful parrots that are still bearing. Modern Tahitian music combines Western modern melodies with traditional nose flutes, drums and shells and is still played in many local dances and festivals. There is no big feast of Tamara Tahiti, and the feast of Tahiti will not end when layers of hot stone are covered in an underground oven where you can cook suckling pig, feiga bananas, breadfruit and vegetables.
