Welcome To French Polynesia
Many people have no idea where French Polynesia is located on the world globe unless you make mention of one of the most well known islands in this vacation destination. That island would be Tahiti and when you have a French Polynesia timeshare, you can not only visit Tahiti, but many of the other 118 islands that make up this area. Located in the eastern South Pacific, French Polynesia has been delighting visitors ever since it was discovered in the 1700s. The native Polynesians are warm and friendly and the scenery is beautiful, making Tahiti and French Polynesia a unique place to visit.
Even though there are 118 islands in French Polynesia, only some of them are inhabited. The entire island chain was given life over 200 million years ago from the volcanoes that remain highly active in the entire South Pacific today. The high islands include those located in the Austral, Gambier, Marquesas and Society chains while the Tuamotu Islands became atolls - areas that have sunk below the current ocean level and formed barrier reefs. In all, French Polynesia has a total land area equivalent to Europe.
As the name implies, French Polynesia was largely governed by France up until 1998. The islands gained almost complete autonomy from France although France is still responsible for the nation's currency and defense.
