Best Things To Do in Tahiti French Polynesia

1. Pā'ōfa'i Gardens

Very nice to chill, children have dedicated areas where they can play safely. Dogs are authorized. Pokestops and arenas for Pogo players

Great place to do running and play with kids

Beautiful waterfront views. Nice for walks around the harbour

C super super super super super cooooooooool 😘😍💕🎅haha!

Great visit to the market

2. Robert Wan Pearl Museum

Ok museum, mainly to showcase the jewelry shop.

Nice overview of pearl history.

Lieu incontournable lors d'un passage à Papeete. L'histoire de la perle, la naissance d'une perle, la qualité de la nacre sont très intéressants. Que dire des colliers et bijoux présentés, un délice pour les yeux...

Magnifique endroit, lieu culte à découvrir si ce n'est pas déjà le cas


3. Moorea Activities Center - Opunohu

We did the all day combo (jet skis & 4 wheeling). The day was absolutely amazing. We spend 3 hours riding the jet skis around the islands and near the reef - ended up at a place we could swim with sharks and Ray's. Middle of the day we were served delicious island rum punch (not too much) since the second half of the day was spent riding ATVs through banana plantations and mountains. Both our guides for morning and attention were great (though sadly I forgot their names). They both and took great photos of us. Really great value for what you get.

We did the Jet ski 4 wheeler combo but broke it up into two mornings. Had a blast! Great staff and tour guides. Swam with whales, sharks and stingrays on the Jet ski tour. This was definitely the highlight of the trip.

We had a great time. We did a Quad & a Jetski Tour. Really friendly guides. Had so much fun!

We had an amazing ATV tour with Moorea Activities Center. The owners and your guides are professional and fun, and go above and beyond to make sure we had a thorough , educational, fun filled day. A special thank you to our guides Patrick and Jay. Truly a highlight of our vacation. Wayne Myers and Donna Laurent

My husband and I did the combo ATV and jet ski tour on our honeymoon. We had amazing guides for both parts and could not recommend this adventure more! It truly satisfied our desire to see the interior of the island and as much water around the island. Well worth the price tag, which ended up being less than $100 per person per activity. Trip highlight, for sure.

4. Papeete Catholic Cathedral

We were in Tahiti on 22nd August, 2017. It was a beautiful but pretty hot afternoon. While in the capital city, Papeete, we were out site-seeing and a bit of window shopping but really looking for the US Embassy, McDonald's and came across the Papeete Catholic Cathedral know as Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Papeete. Not at all far from the waterfront, it' a nice little cathedral. It was built by French missionaries in the period 1848-1875 and inaugurated in 1875 making it the oldest church in Tahiti and one of the last remaining examples of the early colonial architecture of Papeete. The gaily coloured with red roof, not to mention the distinctive red spire on the church tower certainly make this cathedral a stand out in the centre of the capital. This modest Cathedral has benefited from several restorations, namely in 1967, 1988 and in 2005 and it will be interesting to see how it holds its place in years to come as central Papeete develops, as I'm sure that it will. ps. Walking a little further down the road from the Cathedral we eventually found the rather uninteresting U.S. Embassy.

amazing church all honneur and glory for god . thank you god for all the thing you give us Amen.

Stunning little cathederal


A must visit place

5. Toatea Lookout

Wonderfull lookout and fotopoint for honeymooners directly accesible from the Street!

Best tour in moorea. Real Polynesian authentic experience.

Super journée avec Sam ça femme et heva (dsl pour l'orthographe) meilleurs excursions que nous avons fait mon mari et moi après 17jours de voyages et 6 iles, ça Vaux vraiment le coup il faut absolument faire ce tour en immersion avec la vie des laucaux, repas plus que excellent. Merci pour tout David et Céline

Mon ami et moi avons passé une superbe journée en compagnie de Sam et sa femme sylvie sans oublier heiva! Une journée riche en découvertes et en émotions. Ils nous ont permis de retrouver des valeurs que l'ont oublie souvent : la nature, le respect des ancêtres, le partage! Finalement je dirais qu'il n'y a pas de mot pour tout exprimer allez y il faut vivre cette expérience si vous passer par Moorea!

Le top de Moorea

Les activités sont supers et uniques dans leurs genres. Idéal pour rencontrer et vivre le quotidien des polynésiens. Très bon plan pour passer un séjour unique en Polynésie et découvrir Moorea l'île soeur de Tahiti et ses légendes. Il est aussi possible de louer une chambre en plein coeur de la vallée. Sam et Sylvie sont des hôtes très accueillants, gentilles et sympathiques. Il y a un immense potager Bio avec divers fruits et légumes locaux.Je recommande vivement Moorea Maori Tours si vous voulez faire des activités atypiques et en pleine nature. Merci à Sam et Sylvie pour leur accueil et joie de vivre :)

7. aremiti ferry


Très beau ferry et bien équipé. Traversée Papeete/Moorea superbe à faire pour des touristes.

8. Moorea Miti Tours

This was the BEST experience ever! I feel so lucky to have chosen this company over all the rest. I don't want to ruin anything for you by explaining the whole trip, you have to experience the way we did not knowing what to expect, and just see and feel the amazing vibes of the tour guides and the boat driver who sings to everyone while playing a tiny Polynesian guitar. It was such an incredible experience, thank you so much Moorea Miti Tours!! The other tour boats had people in them that kept looking at our boat and our tour, and the looks in their eyes seemed to wish they were with us instead. I've gone on many tours to snorkle, but this was the best. I loved the rum punch at lunch at the picnic tables in the clear water with a view like no other. The stingrays and black tip reef sharks were so gentle and beautiful. Bring your swim shoes and flippers, they provide the rest. Maybe pack an extra towel or sweatshirt if there is an afternoon wind. The combination of super friendly and happy guides with amazing water experiences made for the best day in Moorea. A+++++++++++++++++++

We had the best time discovering the lagoons of Moorea with Miti Tours. The staff was very professional, informative and very friendly. We saw spinner dolphins and turtles, swam with large numbers of black tip sharks and stingrays, and made a few stops at different locations to enjoy the turquoise water by snorkelling or just relaxing in the water. The staff prepared a great lunch which was served on a white sand beach and we ate while little fishes swam around our feet. The skipper drove at a steady speed, allowing us to enjoy the beauty of Moorea in a stress free environment. Miti Tours keeps the group small, to a maximum of 10 guests. We were 4 couples and it was perfect.

Fun trip. Tour guides were great, funny and friendly. Lunch was yummy. Grilled chicken and fish.

Une journée inoubliable grâce à Olivia et Romain qui nous ont régalé tant par les yeux (visite de plusieurs baies, nourrissage des raies, plongée dans l'aquarium,) que par les papilles avec un délicieux repas digne d'un grand chef, servi les pieds dans l'eau. !! Un accueil remarquable, une embarcation originale et très confortable......... nous recommandons vivement cette sortie qui est de grande qualité !!!! Meilleur souvenir. Michelle et Jean Michel

9. Territorial Assembly

Belle demeure

Visite guidée très enrichissante

Assemblée territoriale, organise diverses manifestation dans ses locaux


10. Museum of Tahiti and Her Islands

Great exhibits covering natural and cultural history of the islands. Limited signage in English. Botanical gardens are quite nice.

Excellent local museum. A bit of everything. Geology, anthropology, meteorology, history, etc. A great way to spend an hour or more.

Should be visited ! By all of y ou 4 shure'

11. Tahiti Lagoon Paradise

Captain Benoit was charming and very helpful. He went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable with snorkeling. We did the turtle tour and it did not disappoint. We saw some amazing turtles swimming and feeding in the corral reef. Captain Benoit was very knowledgeable about spotting the turtles and his English was very good. He offers drinks after snorkeling, which was a plus. At the end of our trip, he even dropped us back at our hotel, which wasn’t something we expected. Throughout our excursion, he took many pictures of us and emailed them the same day. I highly recommend using Captain Benoit. You won’t be disappointed!!

It has been 6 months since our trip with Captain Benoit and still to this day it is the thing we talk about the most! Truly the most magnificent experience either of us have ever had. We can’t recommend this enough. Captain Benoit was amazing! He was knowledgeable and still protective of these exquisite creatures! We saw so many things and swam near whales!!!!... something most people will never experience. So memorable and the FAVORITE part of our honeymoon. Every encounter with Captain Ben was wonderful from the emails and planning to meeting at the marina. Our trip was private, individualized and PERFECT in every way! J’adore the whales! Marcie & Nick

My wife and I did a snorkling trip with Benoit, in February 2018 (package 1). We messaged him early in the morning and got a prompt reply, setting up an afternoon voyage. He meet us on time at the marina and helped us board. His boat was in great condition and he was super friendly the whole time. He guided us through the water showing us amazing coral, fish, boat wreck and a plane wreck. His warm hospitality and great service helped make an excellent memory for both us.

Fantastic experience! This was the highlight of our Tahiti trip and I highly recommend it! Great day of snorkeling for the entire family!!

Do this trip! Benoit is an excellent and enthusiastic guide who knows all the best spots to see dolphins, turtles, fish and coral—he has a great knowledge of the area. My wife and I spent an excellent morning on this tour during our honeymoon and got to swim with dolphins and turtles, and see beautiful coral and fish. It is well worth it to take a private tour with Benoit, and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

12. Bougainville Park

Lovely place to sit down and watch the world go by

Hidden good steak house is inside the park
