Papeete, Tahiti — 1 night

The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Fri): explore the galleries of Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art, make a trip to Temple Protestant de Paofai, then look for all kinds of wild species at Natura Exploration, and finally pause for some photo ops at Memorial Site for Nuclear Testings.. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Notre Dame Cathedral and then look for gifts at Tahiti Pearl Market.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Papeete trip planner.

French Polynesia travel guide

4.4
Spanning an area of the South Pacific as large as Western Europe, French Polynesia includes 118 islands and atolls scattered across the blue ocean. White sand beaches (and pink and black) skirt rugged island peaks, while magnificent coral reefs form tranquil lagoons, dyed a startling blue and teeming with fish, eels, dolphins, rays, turtles, and sharks. The names Tahiti and Bora Bora conjure up images of private thatched bungalows built out over a lagoon, and couples silhouetted against the sunset. That said, a wide range of family-run hotels and bed and breakfasts offer less extravagant (and surprisingly affordable) experiences that take in more of the laid-back local culture.
