A tantalizing scent lingers in the air on French Polynesia’s “Vanilla Island,” where 80% of the region’s crop is cultivated. Spend time on this unspoiled island of intense beauty, with many deep bays fringed with purau trees, incredible tropical colors, and scattering of motus. Discover a tranquil land where time stands still and people practice ancestral methods of fishing, canoeing, and farming. Or venture to nearby sister island Raiatea, the cultural, religious, royal, and political heart of Polynesia and home to the Society Islands’ most significant archaeological sites.
