Papeete, Tahiti

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.
Kick off your visit on the 11th (Thu): view the masterpieces at Manua Exquisite Tahitian Art, make a trip to Temple Protestant de Paofai, then get a dose of the wild on Natura Exploration, and finally appreciate the history behind Memorial Site for Nuclear Testings.. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 12th (Fri): pause for some serene contemplation at Notre Dame Cathedral and then stop by Tahiti Pearl Market.

French Polynesia travel guide

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.
