Islands beyond the ordinary
It's spectacular... It's breathtaking.
Tahiti is not for every budget, but it is an excellent value for extraordinary memories. There is no tipping or added taxes in Tahiti. What you read is what you pay. NO hidden costs!
Although Tahiti is actually just one island, in the minds of many people the name represents the entire group of islands that comprise Tahiti and Her Islands, located in the South Pacific. The region actually consists of 118 islands in 5 archipelagos, or groups of islands. The best known group is probably The Society Islands whose most visited islands are Tahiti, the largest island, for the person who wants to try a little of everything that the modern and natural worlds have to offer, Moorea with its deep and spectacular bays surrounded by green-covered mountains that rise from the bottom of the sea, and quite simply the most beautiful island in the world... Bora Bora, with its palm-fringed beaches!
Tahiti and Her Islands are what you've always imagined the South Seas to be - an idyllic getaway from the stress of the modern world, resembling heaven more than earth. It's a very sensual place - a feast for your eyes, ears and nose. Time and stress melt away in Tahiti and you soon understand why so many people came to Tahiti and never left its shores.
On all the islands, you can spend endless days snorkeling and diving, or swimming side-by-side with turtles and manta rays. Feel the cooling breeze in your hair as you parasail or jet ski. Check out the local markets for original art, pearls and wooden carvings. Sample fine dining with influences from France and the South Pacific, and stay in accommodations ranging from exquisite beachside resorts to intimate bungalows. No matter which island you visit, you'll find the same untouched environment that inspired the great paintings of Gauguin, and countless others.
Fun Fact: In Tahiti, it’s common for women to walk around with a fragrant white blossom called tiare, the island’s national flower, behind one’s ear. However, the placement of the tiare is very telling, so couples take note. Placing the flower on the left side means you are taken, and the right side means you are available.
Each island is unique and as you are doing your research, you will begin to narrow down your choices of islands that appeal to you.
Ideally, it is recommended that you pick one or two islands for a 10-day stay with no less than 3 nights on each island. If you have the time and budget, a two-week stay with a visit to 3 islands would be a wonderful itinerary!
Throughout this website you will see references to OWB, or over-water bungalows which are very popular in French Polynesia.
