    This free Museum offers a great discovery of the middle of the Pearl of Polynesia with wonderful jewels (overpriced but worth them...)

    Store pearls in Papeete or there are some explanations on the collection and manufacture of beads. But not everything is pretext to sale

    Surely it is an interesting visit to know and admire the pearls! Detailed descriptions give us by Italo, an Italian who works here for 17 years.

Where to stay in Papeete

The best selection of hotels in Pape'ete is concentrated in the vicinity of the docks--a vibrant area with plenty of nightlife, and in close proximity to the bustling market. Options range from pricey international hotels to very affordable bed and breakfasts and family-run boarding houses. A little farther afield (and much higher up the price range), luxurious five-star resorts offer private beaches, pools, and bungalows above the gently lapping waves of the lagoon.
