Tiny islands encircled by turquoise lagoons, sugary soft beaches fringed with swaying palms – French Polynesia is every over-worked person’s paradise. With its iconic overwater bungalows perched over crystal clear waters, Bora Bora has become the ultimate holiday pin-up. It’s nothing short of gorgeous. In June, French Polynesia’s temperatures hover blissfully around the late twenties and the skies are set to sunny, making it a great time to plan your escape.
For many, French Polynesia might seem financially out of reach and that’s because everything about it screams exclusive – and therefore, expensive. However, taking a trip to French Polynesia doesn’t necessarily need to cost the earth. There are ways to do it without spending a small fortune on scratch cards. If overwater bungalow rates on Bora Bora make you wince, there are many other islands to explore with equally jaw-dropping scenery. By staying in family-owned local pensions rather than big resorts, paradise becomes affordable.
