Living in French Polynesia
French Polynesia is a French overseas territory, located fairly centrally in the South Pacific Ocean. In total, the territory is formed of over 100 small islands spread across the Ocean; collectively, the territory only measures 1,609 square miles. Tahiti is the most well-known and populous island and is the capital of the territory; 7 out of 10 Polynesians reside on the island. These islands, likely due to their remote location and distance from any mainland region, were among the last areas on which humans created settlements. Tourism is a key source of income for territory; islands such as Tahiti and Bora Bora are very attractive due to their idyllic beaches, and most major islands have tourism infrastructure in place to some extent. Farming is also a main industry, with exotic fruits and vanilla amongst the regions main exports. The Tahitian Pearl is also a unique product and represents one of French Polynesia’s most valuable commodities. The territory does also benefit from financial assistance from the mainland French government. Around 85% Polynesians are Christians, although there is a relatively even split between those who are Roman Catholic and those who a Protestant. The islands are known for their water sports; va’a is a national sport, which involves racing canoes unique to the islands, while surfing and diving opportunities are also common reasons for people to visit French Polynesia.
