Papeete Tours, Vacation Packages & Romantic Getaways


  • Papeete is the capital of French Polynesia and typically the starting point of your Tahiti vacation

Papeete is situated on the main and largest island of Tahiti and of French Polynesia thus it is the gateway to all the other Tahitian islands such as Moorea and Bora Bora. It is the centre of government, commerce and industry as well as the capital city.

Papeete is the place to discover Tahitian culture. One can visit the Museum of Tahiti And Her Islands to learn about Polynesian history and culture. The Paul Gauguin Museum also makes for an entertaining cultural visit with its original paintings and reproductions. Perhaps take time to visit the local Tahitian markets with their locally produced crafts or enjoy dining on the waterfront and sample French, Tahitian and Chinese cuisines in an al fresco setting under the stars on a Tahit vacation.

Papeete boasts numerous parks and gardens and has the world’s most diverse and largest number of species of cultivated orchids.

Inland Tahiti is almost entirely uninhabited as it is so rugged. However, a circle island tour will allow you to see waterfalls, grottos and amazing lookout points. Naturally if white sandy beaches and relaxation is required, these facilities are readily available along the coast.
