Tahiti Local Information and Area Highlights

Travel to Tahiti / Tahiti Vacation Rentals

The beaches, the volcanic formations, the colorful lagoons, great flora and fauna, and black pearls all converge onto Tahiti. Book your Tahiti vacation rental quickly, even though the sharks won’t be pursuing you!

Tahiti Diving

Scuba diving is wildly popular in Tahiti, since you can participate in the sport from January through December. The best times, though, are between the months of April to November. Some of the best dive locations in Tahiti are the atolls (primarily Rangiroa) and Bora Bora, Tahiti, Moorea, and Huahine. The lagoons, the passes, and the oceanic drop off are the types of diving areas available in the island areas. The fish to see on dives range from butterfly fish to napoleons and barracudas, and even the sharks are not generally hazardous! Have a world of fun diving around Tahiti! Coastal vacation rentals in Tahiti are a great idea if you're a fan of fishing, or diving.

Tahiti Vacation Spots

Though small, the island of Bora Bora is breathtaking and therefore holds quite a bit of vacation attraction. The lagoon does not simply display one color: various shades become apparent as you traverse the waters. Ray fish actually gather in an area off of Point Matira, and you can try a ray feeding tour. Watch shark feeding as well, and see the Coral Garden underwater park.

Visit the quaint village of Rotoava on the atoll of Fakarava, or the miniscule settlement on the islet of Tetamanu. Fakarava has a huge lagoon that is used for pearl farms, and there are peaceful beaches of white sand. Small islands within the lagoon are enjoyed by various species of nesting birds. For water lovers, the passes are limitless in interest to scuba divers and snorkelers.

Huahine is blanketed with lush, verdant rainforests and is actually composed of two islands: Huahine Nui and Huahine-Iti. Travel down the very scenic, unpaved road leading to several small villages decorated with colorful homes. Visit the Maeva Village, containing archaeological sites from at least a millennium ago.

Manihi is the birthplace of black pearl farming, so a trip to one of the farms at the side of the lagoon is a don’t-miss attraction. Fishing is one of the activities of the lagoon, whether it’s line fishing you desire or the alternate spear fishing. Snorkelers will delight in snorkeling right underneath their vacation rental, an above-the-water bungalow.

The Marquesas are twelve islands with constant cloud cover and very verdant landscapes, and only half of the islands are inhabited. The flora of the islands includes plumeria, tiare, and bougainvillea. These islands were featured in the United States’ television reality series Survivor. Ua Pou features wonderful mountain and man-made peaks, while Fatu Hiva has perfumes from nature’s bounty.

Peer down into the deep bays of Moorea, and relax on the white sand beaches. Appreciate the volcanic peaks and the vegetation-covered mountains. One of the most amazing views that you can see is at the Belvedere Lookout, accessible from Cook’s Bay and Oponohu Bay. On Moorea, use a 4WD vehicle, or go dolphin and whale watching, or shop a bit along the road: it’s your choice.

The multicolored lagoon that both Raiatea and Tahaa share can be enjoyed via scuba diving, sailing, and deep-sea fishing. Raiatea has become the trading center for the leeward set of islands. Tour the vanilla plantations on Tahaa and discover facets of the coral reef.

Rangiroa is well known for snorkeling to see the vast rainbow of fish amidst sharks. Partake of some line or drag fishing, or scuba dive. Motu Paio has a bird sanctuary to visit, and you can stay in a vacation rental in quite remote fashion.

The largest island, Tahiti, offers a variety of activities such as the Museum of Tahiti and Her Islands, and a wealth of outdoor sports ranging from horseback riding to windsurfing to golf at a course designed similarly to United States courses. Shop for black pearls, and dine on your choice of fare from French to Italian to Vietnamese cuisine in Papeete. The waterfront harbor has both cruise ships and sailing yachts.

The village of Tuherahera, on the atoll of Tikehau, has an abundance of flora. Tikehau also has wonderful water fauna such as tunas, barracudas, and reef sharks, and a wealth of bird colonies on land. The waters also are the setting for an incredible number of fish. The culture breathes the Tuamotu way, and Maiaia produces copra, a coconut product.
