The French Polynesian Islands Will Reopen Their Borders To Tourists From May 1

Tahiti and Bora Bora await.

Back in March, Greece announced that it would be welcoming visitors from anywhere in the world from May 14, and whilst the government does not advise international travel at the moment it’s good to know that somewhere so beautiful will be waiting once it’s safe to travel again. Now, it seems another country could be joining Greece in reopening borders next month.

The stunning French Polynesian islands have announced that they too will be opening to tourists from May 1. The news comes after a conversation between French President Emmanuel Macron and President of the French Polynesian islands, Edouard Fritch, in which Fritch elaborated, saying:  ‘We will detail precisely the health system with the High Commissioner in the coming days’.

So, the nature of this ‘health system’ is not yet known. It could be that French Polynesia will have certain regulations by which travellers will have to abide upon arrival, but for now, we’re going to sit back and dream of the beautiful blue waters and soft white sand of these gorgeous islands. It makes a fantastic escape from the soggy, cold weather up here in the North.
