The Marquesas Islands are a group of volcanic islands in French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity of France in the southern Pacific Ocean.

Grand, brooding, powerful and charismatic: that pretty much sums up the Marquesas. Here, nature’s fingers have sculpted intricate jewels that jut up dramatically from the cobalt-blue ocean. Waterfalls taller than skyscrapers trickle down vertical canyons, the ocean thrashes towering sea cliffs, sharp basalt pinnacles project from emerald forests, and scalloped bays are blanketed with desert arcs of white or black sand.

Another highlight is the culture. In everything from cuisine and dances to language and crafts, the Marquesas do feel different from the rest of French Polynesia. But don’t expect turquoise lagoons, swanky resorts and an electric nightlife – the Marquesas are an ecotourist’s dream, not a beach-holiday destination.
