Stunning beaches, crystal clear waters and one of the friendliest welcomes in the Pacific. What's not to like?
The island is home to the town of Papeete - the capital of French Polynesia. The stunning island is lush with tropical vegetation and surrounded by coral reefs, making it a top spot for nature lovers and divers.
The towering forms of Mount Orohena and other looming volcanoes make for a dramatically beautiful natural landscape. The deep green valleys, rushing rivers, exotic flowers, fruit and vegetable plantations and cascading waterfalls add to the long list of attractions for outdoor types. Tahiti Museum is a good bet for rainy days, with its interesting displays of historic island artefacts, while nearby attractions such as the beautiful island of Bora Bora can be reached by boat.
The island's undulating valleys are perfect for nature walks and rambles, while the many white sandy beaches are great for relaxing and enjoying a cooling coconut water or a cocktail. Scuba diving and snorkelling among the coral reefs are popular activities in Tahiti, while the Lagoonarium is an impressive aquarium attraction that allows visitors to step into an underground world where they can appreciate magnificent marine life up close.
