  • The Park is a little unkempt, with garbage and tall grass, but you can spend the time doing a walk.

  • Great place for all ages. Play areas safe for little ones. The biggest waivers, spaces for play ball, paths to walk, jogging, cycling or simply relax on a bench enjoying a beautiful sunset on Moorea.

  • Great place to do a brisk walk and keep in shape, among the trees and the shade with a slight breeze coming from the sea. Bonus: beautiful views of the Bay of Papeete and the island of Moorea to help stay zen. Only downside: public toilets are not very clean and stink.

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.
