Tahiti island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Tahiti is the main island of French Polynesia. All international flights arrive to Papeete, so you'll spend some time here anyway. Most tourists reasonably choose a short connection time in Tahiti on their way to more interesting islands. However, there are some good beaches - mostly with black sand, as well as world class surfing. But, anyway, it makes no sense to spend a lot of time in Tahiti. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #15 of the "Best islands in French Polynesia"

Hotels [edit]

There are a lot of hotels in Tahiti to suite every choice - from cheap guesthouses to upscale beachfront resorts. But anyway rooms' fares start from US$100 per night, since everything is expensive in French Polynesia.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Tahiti International Airport (PPT). Next hire a taxi or take a bus.

Most flights arrive to Tahiti from Los Angeles, Auckland and Tokyo. And there is no direct route from Paris! In fact, this is just a connecting flight via Los Angeles. As well as all "direct" flights from Sydney are just a connecting flights via Auckland.

When to go [edit]

The best time to relax on Tahiti island is a dry season from April to September.
