It’s like nowhere else in the world. Paradise found. One of the last places on earth to be populated by humans, the Society Islands were also one of the final spots to be colonized by Europeans. Lost at sea, starving and thirsty, it’s no surprise that the French sailors who landed here would soon stake their claim in these warm, alluring isles, ripe with fruit and beautiful women. Even today, the French government continues to subsidize wine and bread in these Pacific islands, and with plentiful fish, bananas free for the picking, and easy-flowing local beer, it’s a true sailor’s paradise.
