Meeting the habitants

Let's avoid...

  • Stereotypes
  • To stay focus on your little habits, your daily life
  • To take pictures of people without asking
  • To venture alone, without a guide, off the marked trails

But rather...

  • Keep an open mind and be respectful
  • Show your pictures to your "models" or even better, hand them a copy
  • Stay on the beaten track and make sure to be accompanied and to inform someone of your itinerary

To preserve the beauty of our islands

  • Sort your waste and take a small bag with you to avoid throwing it away during an excursion.
  • Choose an eco-friendly sun protection
  • Take your flask everywhere to avoid using plastic bottles
  • Turn off electrical appliances, lighting, air conditioning and shut off the tap
  • Try to pick eco-responsible accommodation: try to find the coconut pictogram on our website

For a sustainable and prosperous Polynesia

Let's avoid

  • Keeping the same consumption habits and buying imported products

But rather...

  • Consume local products, stop by small picturesque restaurants which priotarize short circuits and buy craftsmanship
  • Swap your sneakers for flip flops and live by the local lifestyle

To continue to promote the polynesian culture

Let's avoid

  • The most popular itineraries during high season when possible 
  • Touching artifacts and archaeological vestige
  • Picking up seashells on the beach (someone may live in here...) and touching endangered species

But rather...

  • Think outside the box and choose less crowded destinations which turn out to be as beautiful

After your stay in French Polynesia

Say "Nana" (goodbye) The Islands of Tahiti

Think about...

  • Offseting part of the gas emissions of your trip by supporting a local association devoted to the preservation of the environment and cultural richness of our islands
  • Spread the word and tell your friends and relatives about these good practices
