What to do in

The Islands of Tahiti

Tahiti Activities

With so many options for Tahiti activities, you can do as much or as little as you like. The Islands of Tahiti, officially known as French Polynesia, possess one of the most spectacularly beautiful and diverse environments on earth. Perfect for the adventurous types interested in hikes to any of the beautiful Tahiti waterfalls.

A mixture of high volcanic islands and low-lying atolls, these specks of land – 118 islands in all – are strewn across four million square km of the South Pacific. Jump in to truly experience the ocean and try your hand at Tahiti’s scuba diving. You might be lucky enough to see some Tahiti wildlife!

Clustered into five archipelagos: the Society Islands, the Tuamotu Islands, the Gambier Islands, the Marquesas Islands and the Austral Islands, The Islands of Tahiti have in common a delightful blend of Polynesian and French cultures, and a consistently tropical climate. Experience all the various Tahiti activities while island hopping, from the Bora Bora overwater bungalows, to a true Tahiti surf experience in Moorea, or sipping Tahitian noni juice and trying local Tahitian foods at Papeete’s market on Tahiti Island.

French Polynesia’s world of oceanic islands offers vacationers an almost limitless range of vacation activities, both passive and active, in case you’d rather spend a leisurely day plating some laid-back Tahiti golf, or catching some sun.

There are many sides and activities to The Islands of Tahiti. Yet they are all connected by Mana. Mana is a life force and spirit that surrounds us. You can see it. Touch it. Taste it. Feel it. And from the moment you arrive, you will understand why we say our islands are Embraced by Mana.

Here, you’ll find it all. From paragliding to beach combing to embracing the laid-back island lifestyle, The Islands of Tahiti are packed with a mix of tropical adventure and blissful relaxation. Stay in Tahiti’s overwater bungalows to experience true island living while you’re here. Or go snorkeling to get up close and personal with the local wildlife. If you’re feeling even more daring, take a trip to swim with the Tahiti sharks! Shop for cultured pearls at Papeete’s market, take a Tahiti cruise, play a few rounds of golf, enjoy a motu picnic with the family – there’s so much to do in The Islands of Tahiti that you’ll never want to leave.
