Plan your trip to Tahiti, Australia and Oceania
Time Zone: Pacific/Tahiti
Tahiti is the largest of several islands that comprise French Polynesia in the South Pacific. Some of Tahiti’s major neighboring islands include Bora Bora and Moorea.
By strolling or hiking around Tahiti’s volcanic mountain ranges, white sandy beaches, tropical rain forests and small lagoons, you can get a feel for the island’s natural environment. Papeete, Tahiti’s capital, offers a range of family water activities including windsurfing, waterskiing, canoeing and parasailing. As part of some of the island’s guided cruise tours, go on diving and snorkeling expeditions to admire the diverse marine life. If you’re in the mood for an afternoon of relaxation, you can prepare a beach picnic at any of Tahiti’s secluded beaches.
For a firsthand cultural island experience, visit the fruit-tasting shops and local markets spread throughout the villages, or get a glimpse into the island’s nightlife, which includes shows that feature the traditional dance and music of Tahitian performers.
