South Pacific

16 days Luxury Yacht Charter Experience

The ultimate tropical idyll, the islands of the South Pacific are worth the journey

The islands of French Polynesia and the South Pacific are in a league of their own.
No other cruising destination is quite as remote or as exotic as these intriguing shores

DAY 1 TO 2

Embark in Fakarava and spend a couple of days acclimatising to the gentle pace of life on board as you cruise around the coastlines. The island, especially the South Pass, remains virtually untouched. Life along the North Pass is equally unique with quaint villages, old coral churches and welcoming locals.
