Feb 27, 2008
Valentine's Day is fast approaching. Like every year, you may be planning to give some unique gifts to your lovers, friends, and dear ones on this special day. Valentine's Day is simply referred to as a day of romance, during which lovers exchange love messages, flowers, and gifts among each other. But, there are some lovers who want to make it truly special by giving their dear ones something unique. For such lovers and couples, one of the best ways to celebrate Valentines Day is by taking a tour to some destinations that help to rekindle their romantic feelings for each other.

One such destination in the world is French Polynesia, which is better known by the name of its main island, Tahiti. A part of the French Republic, French Polynesia or Tahiti is a constellation of about 118 islands and atolls that are spread across the South Pacific Ocean. Tahiti and her islands, grouped into five main island groups such as the Society Islands, the Marquesas Islands, the Gambier Islands, the Austral Islands, and the Tuamotu Atolls, provides unbeatable romantic experience.

Each of the Tahitian Islands has its own significance, and is much favored for its unique culture, ethnicity, and incredible landscape noted for its pristine beauty. For instance, Bora Bora in Society Islands is perhaps the most romantic places on the earth. With two majestic mountain peaks and a magnificent multicolored lagoon, Bora Bora provides lovers and couples with such an experience that lasts for a lifetime.

Likewise, couples and lovers can add to charm and hue of the Valentines Day by getting married in traditional Polynesian style at Tiki Village, which is situated in Moorea Island, in the Society Archipelago. At Tiki Village, lovers can choose from three types of wedding packages such as the Princess Wedding, covering the service of village chief or high priest, band of local musicians, gorgeous leis as well as crowns of flowers, and transportation back to hotel.

The Royal Wedding, which is more or less like the Princess Wedding, with the exception that it includes couples arrive in a canoe from their hotel, couples carried atop Royal Chairs by warrior, and a romantic cruise on canoe; and the Royal Deluxe Wedding, which is same as the Royal wedding but cover spectacular Tahitian dancing and singing traditional songs by Tahitian mamas.

Other popular destinations in French Polynesia to celebrate Valentines Day are Tahiti, with Pepeete as its administrative seat; Huahine, a picturesque island much famed for its beautiful vanilla plantation and interesting parks and botanical gardens; Raiatea, which is regarded as the cultural heart of Tahiti; and Tahaa, with a wonderful landscape containing incredible lagoon filled with rare marine species.

Apart from these, all of the islands in French Polynesia are a mecca for enjoying a continuum of activities. From water sport activities and land based activities to recreational and adventure activities, Tahiti and her islands provide superb options for all types of activities. For instance, with a stupendous lagoon containing a myriad of rare fish species and with such spots as the Aquarium, the Shark Cave, the Tiputa Caverns, and Avatoru inlet, Rangiroa in Tuamotu Atolls provides an excellent base for activities such as diving and snorkeling. Similarly, Bora Bora is also a great spot for diving, with its beautiful lagoon. A host of other activities can also be enjoyed here such as deep sea fishing, paragliding, windsurfing, 4x4 safari tours, hiking, climbing, and trekking.

Above all, French Polynesia presents a feast of attractions for couples and lovers touring the destination. Some of the most popular attractions in Tahiti are Pearl Museum, Fautaua Waterfalls, Paul Gauguin Museum, and the Municipal Market. Likewise, a visit to French Polynesia would not to be complete without taking a trip to Bora Bora's ancient mareas and lagoonarium, where you can view, feed, and interact with marine species such as sharks, manta rays, and dolphins. Apart from these, you can also see and come through a spectrum of attractions in destinations such as Moorea and Huahine.
