Tahiti

The natural beauty, tranquility and rich culture of this South Pacific island are connected by a life force and spirit the local people call “Mana.”

Tahiti vacations allow you to live in the moment, the moment you arrive.

The heart of the South Pacific

Just the word “Tahiti” conjures up powerful images of an exotic getaway. And it should. A Tahiti vacation offers a wide array of rich and diverse experiences ranging from the music, dance and warmth of its people, to the unique architecture of the overwater bungalows and rejuvenating Polynesian spas. The island may seem small, but don’t let that fool you. Tahiti packs in quite a lot.

Papeete

Papeete is the political capital of French Polynesia and the cultural capital of Tahiti. If you’re looking to dive deep into the culture of the island, this is the place to do it. With seemingly endless shops and restaurants, your casual wanderings will lead you through the Vaiete and To’ata squares, and past charming local favorites like the Papeete Market and the yellow Notre Dame Cathedral.

Papeete 
Travel Tip

The Notre Dame Cathedral is the oldest Catholic church in Tahiti and one of Papeete’s last remaining examples of early colonial architecture.

Polynesian Culture

The island of Tahiti is located in the “Polynesian Triangle,” and was first settled around 4000 BC. If you’re interested in learning more about this rich cultural history, there are plenty of opportunities to do it. You can visit giant open-air stone sanctuaries called Maraes, watch beautiful Tahitian dances with traditional music like thunderous drums, conch shells, and harmonic nasal flutes, or take in local hand-crafted goods likes weavings, quilting, wooden sculptures, drums and hand-dyed items.

Culture 
Travel Tip

The Heiva Festival takes place every July in Papeete. It gathers Tahitian people from far and wide to display their crafts, compete in ancient sporting events and recreate traditional and elaborate dance performances.

Diving through natural wonders

Diving is one of the most popular activities on the island. The alluring diving sites of Tahiti Nui and Tahiti Iti are well-suited for both beginner and advanced divers. These spots allow you to explore clear and shallow waters, steep oceanic drop-offs, sunken vessels, walls of bright coral and schools of exotic fish.

Diving Wonders 
Travel Tip

It’s not unusual for humpback whales to swim nearby and thrill divers during their annual parade.

The Islands

Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia, but there are also dozens of smaller islands in the surrounding waters. As a part of the Society Islands, Tahiti is in the same grouping as Moorea (The Magical Island), Bora Bora (The Romantic Island), Huahine (The Garden of Eden), Raiatea (The Sacred Island), Tahaa (The Vanilla Island) and Tetiaroa (The Birds Island). Then there are also the Austral Islands, that include Rurutu (The Island of Whales), and the Tuamotu Islands, that include Rangiroa (The Endless Lagoon), Mahihi (The Island of Pearls), Tikehau (The Pink Sand Island) and Fakarava (The Island of Dreams). Next, the Marquesa Islands have Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa (The Mysterious Islands), and the Gambier Islands have Mangareva (The End of the World).

Travel Tip

Some of the islands, like Moorea, are only 28 miles away from the island of Tahiti. But others, like the Gambier Islands, are over 1000 miles away.
