Allow your imagination to be taken as though a wave by the blue South Pacific waters that surround this tropical island. Hike a mountain until you reach French Polynesia’s highest point.

Where to Go on a Tahiti Vacation

1. Mont Orohena

If you’re interested in hiking, then a visit to Mont Orohena is a must. This extinct volcano is French Polynesia’s highest point, reaching the dizzying heights of 7,352 feet. For those wishing to get lost in the clouds, guides are available to offer insight into the volcano’s slightly unusual rock formation, flora and vegetation. Ask your Tourlane Travel Expert for more information. On a clear day, the sweeping views from the peak of this mountain are endless and worldly.

2. Water Gardens Vaipahi

If you’re looking for something calm and relaxing, head to Water Gardens. Coconut trees, lily pads, and cascading waters; few gardens on earth rival the tranquil vibe of the Water Gardens Vaipahi. Located on the south coast of the island, several tours will walk you through overhanging trees and spilling waters, while introducing you to fragrant lilies. This piece of paradise is Tahiti’s version of the Garden of Eden. 

3. Plage Vaiava

Looking for a beautiful beach? Sun yourself beside the shallow waters found at Plage Vaiava. A popular spot for locals and tourists alike, head to this idyllic beach-side retreat to paddle board, snorkel, or simply to cool down. Lay back with a good book as you catch rays in this tranquil west coast setting that’s always in vogue.

4. Faarumai Waterfall 

A 45-minute drive from Papeete, winding roads lead to the falling waters of Faarumai. Enjoy this purely natural environment in utter peace. A short stroll through mape and coconut trees leads to two other waterfalls (Haamaremare Rahi and Haamaremare Iti). A dip in the natural pool waters found in this area will feel divine.

5. Papeete

Papeete is French Polynesia’s capital. It’s a city that bursts with authentic Polynesian life, enthralling museums (check out the Pearl Museum), markets, excellent fresh cuisine, and charming local welcomes. Papeete’s main market, Marche de Papeete, bubbles with life as locals explore the various artisan stands and fresh food stalls on offer. The waterfront esplanade is the perfect spot to witness a crimson sunset in this modestly sized city.

6. Tahiti Lagoon Paradise

The aptly named Tahiti Lagoon Paradise provides you with private tours that accommodate snorkeling alongside dolphins, turtles and tropical fish. Explore the jagged coral reef found in the underworld below. The streaked blues of these waters will enchant as you catch a breath, whilst taking in the stunning backdrop of Mount Orohena. Less
