French Polynesia: travelling advices

6. When faced with a ramp or shark in the water, it is important not to panic but calmly sail away. Shark attacks in the waters of French Polynesia are very rare, as most of these frightening water inhabitants are non-aggressive. Dangerous wart fish only stings when stepped on, but it is better not to completely keep away from the moray eels living in corals.
7. French Polynesia is a great place to relax, especially on the water. For tourists who want to take a dive wearing a mask and tube, it is better to bring these diving gears along with you on your trip, and if you do not have them, buy in your home country. One of the reasons for this is hygiene. This does not mean that Polynesians do not wash masks and tubes that they offer for rent, but it is always better to be on the safe side. The second reason is the price. It is often cheaper to buy a mask and snorkel at a sports store and take them with you on a journey than to rent them on the islands.
8. The inhabitants of French Polynesia do not like indiscretion, so you should not flaunt expensive things so that the islanders would not think that you are trying to humiliate them. Thefts on the islands are rare, but not many people have heard of more serious crimes like robbery, but leaving an expensive phone or camera unattended is not advisable.
9. It is necessary to carry a passport with you everywhere, and a photocopy is best. Going out without an identity card is not allowed by law. You would not be imprisoned for this of course, but you can get into an unpleasant situation with the local police and spend several hours in the station. … Open
