French Polynesia is a collection of 118 islands and atolls in the Pacific Ocean between South America and Australia. Just over half of the islands are inhabited. There are five groups of islands: the Society Islands, composed of the Windward Islands and the Leeward Islands Gambier, Marquesas and Austral Islands, and the Tuamotu Archipelago. The largest of the Windward Islands is Tahiti which is where you will find the capital city of Papeete. As you might expect, being situated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the islands have a tropical monsoon climate with a wet season and dry season. The wet season is November to April, and August is the driest month.
