When visiting French Polynesia, it can seem like it’s really expensive! Bora Bora is a popular honeymoon destination with gorgeous luxury overwater bungalows, but there are also a ton of low-cost accommodations on the islands.
If you’re planning a trip to French Polynesia, here is what you can expect to spend.
We spent 10 nights in French Polynesia, so here’s what we spent in total.
$2440 total (244/night)
This includes a night at overwater bungalow for $1000/night, so if you don’t stay in an overwater bungalow, the accommodation budget will be much less. We stayed at 6 different accommodations over 10 nights, ranging from $100-$1000/night.
Total $973 – $97/day
Food and drinks were pretty reasonable. For example 2 tuna dishes and 2 cocktails on Moorea was $64.
Total $358 ($35/day)
We didn’t spend a ton on groceries, there were a few places we cooked our own meals. But we do like to buy beer, water, and some snacks to save us from eating out all the time.
Total $1240 – $620/person
This can get expensive if you decide to visit lots of islands. You can take the ferry between Tahiti and Moorea, but otherwise you’ll need to buy flights. We bought the inter-island flight pass, but with 3 different flights, it came out to be $460/person.
