Known as the “Jewel of the South Pacific”, French Polynesia is a great place to start your luxury yacht experience. Tahiti is a French archipelago in French Polynesia that lies in the middle of the Pacific Ocean just between Australia and America. One of the reasons why Tahiti has become a popular yachting destination is because of its easy accessibility from the United States.
The archipelago hosts a combination of volcanic peaks and tropical atolls. The main yacht charter grounds are the Leeward Islands which are located at the Northern end. You can sail across the blue lagoons and pass by the green island volcanic mountains. A must see when visiting Tahiti is the famous island of Bora Bora which is a top vacation destination for your favorite celebrities. Other islands to visit are Raiatea, Tahaa, and Humane.
A Fiji yacht experience is perfect for a romantic getaway with your partner, a family vacation, or an adventure with all of your friends. The 300 islands of Fiji hosts endless wonders for all to enjoy. A lot of the Fijian islands are not accessible due to their remoteness, but with a yacht charter you can have a glimpse of some of these islands from a distance.
The capital of Fiji is Suva and it sits on the island of Vita Levu. There are quite a few island groups that are a short distance from Vita Levu. You can sail to the Yasawa island group which is the famous filming location of “The Blue Lagoon” on Turtle Island or sail to Vanau Levu which is the northern island where you’ll find some of the most ideal diving spots in the world.
With beautiful volcanic mountains, warm tropical waters, and the amazing hospitality of the Fijian people, Fuji is truly a great sailing destination for all.
Located off the east coast of Australia and halfway to Fiji, New Caledonia has an incredible blend of different ethnic groups. With Melanesian and French culture mixed with Asian and Polynesian, there is a perfectly diverse location for all to enjoy. It is also the third largest island in the South Pacific and is paradise if you’re a nature lover.
New Caledonia also hosts the world’s largest lagoon that spans over 14,000 square miles. It is arguably one of the most incredible sailing locations in the world with Belep to the north and the Isle of Pines to the south. There are many small islands scattered throughout the lagoon within easy sailing distance. Depending on which you choose, you can be lucky enough to have one of the pristine beaches all to yourself. The water here is so clear that you can get a clear view of the fish from the deck of your luxury yacht charter.
At the southern tip of New Caledonia, there is an amazing yachting destination around 80km from Noumea. Kanumera Rock and Kuto are two of the best beaches in this region with many anchorages for clear blue water and white sand beaches. The Loyalty Islands archipelago consist of Mare, Ouvea, and Lifou. They are about 100 miles from the main island of Grande Terre in New Caledonia.
You will uncover many secrets of the Melanesian world. Lifou is the biggest island on the archipelago with endless sandy beaches, tropical vegetation, and limestone cliffs. Ouvea, stretching 25km, has the longest sandy beach in the region and people relax from sunrise to sunset.
