  • If you are coming off a cruise ship with limited time to spend in Papeete, and without a car, then maybe this is a great place to walk around. It's a park, and not a spectacular one, along the harbor....  more »
  • The must-see Paofai Park. Very nice park for beautiful walks with its children's games and weight-training equipment for the more athletic. However be careful as this park is not very shady!

  • Beautiful well-maintained garden with stunning views of Moorea and the harbour. Nice to walk around when you're walking around town in Papeete. You have to stop there and admire the view. Push the walk to the port which was redone a few years ago but still shines as much! Especially at sunset it's beautiful!
