Lock Map
Area:4,167 km2
Locality type:Overseas Collectivity


It is composed of 118 geographically dispersed islands and atolls extending over an expanse of more than 2,000 kilometres in the south-central part of the Pacific Ocean between 5° and 30° S and 130° and 160° W. It is divided into five groups of islands:
- the Society Islands archipelago, consisting of the Windward Islands and the Leeward Islands;
- the Tuamotu Archipelago or the Tuamotus;
- the Gambier Islands;
- the Marquesas Islands;
- the Austral Islands.
French Polynesia has five administrative subdivisions: Austral Islands, Marquesas Islands, Windward Islands, Leeward Islands, and Tuamotu-Gambier.

From north to south the Neogene–Quaternary volcanic Marquesas, Society, Gambier-Pitcairn, and Cook-Austral island chains are composed mainly of high islands, whereas the Tuamotu archipelago is composed entirely of atolls.
