Papeete — 14 nights

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Notre Dame Cathedral and Eglise de la Sainte Famille. Musee de la perle et Bijouterie and Museum of Tahiti and the Islands are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Papeete side-trips: Protestant Temple of Papetoai (in Papetoai), Afareaitu Waterfalls (in Afareaitu) and Tiahura Beach (in Ha'apiti). There's still lots to do: stop by Tahia Exquisite Tahitian Pearls, steep yourself in history at James Norman Hall Home, get a dose of the wild on Natura Exploration, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Tomb of King Pomare V.

Tahiti travel guide

4.1
Gift & Specialty Shops · Flea Markets · Safaris
The largest and probably best-known of the French Polynesian islands, Tahiti remains synonymous with turquoise coral lagoons, lush tropical vegetation, and palm-fringed beaches of black, volcanic sand. Tall, green mountains rise out of the blue ocean, lined with deep valleys, foaming waterfalls, and tumbling streams. Settlements skirt the island, including French Polynesia's small but vibrant capital Pape'ete, where colorful architecture, a bustling market, and smiling locals generate a great deal of charm. Top things to do here include exploring the island's rugged interior, as well as experiencing the traditional culture through archeological sites and hip-shaking music and dance.
