French Polynesia - a honeymooners' paradise and the ultimate getaway for newlyweds Danielle and Luke.

Best places to eat...
"Bora Bora isn't really a 'foodie' destination. That said, our best dinner was at a local restaurant in Moorea called 'Tiahura'. It's a very casual local restaurant but the food was delish! We also went to 'Moorea Beach Cafe' which had a really nice sunset view. In Bora Bora, our dinner was included with our hotel and they had great restaurants so we were happy to stay."
Tip for honeymooning in Bora Bora...
"I recommend pre-booking some activities to save some money. We worked with a travel agent, which I never do, but highly recommend for this destination. After spending a year planning our wedding it was so nice to not have to worry about any planning or coordinating. Our travel agent was Candice at tahiti.com and we highly recommend her!"
