French PolynÚsia is the epitome of a tropical island paradise. It is a group of around 130 islands in the South Pacific Ocean, the largest being Tahiti. Bora Bora is said to be the most beautiful island in the world. These volcanic islands are steep and covered in rainforest with many rivers and waterfalls.|
The black-sand beaches and diving opportunities are a big attraction for visitors to these remote islands, although getting there can be expensive. Surprisingly, the art form of tattooing originated here.
