Tomb of King Pomare V, Papeete

1.0
#6 of 7 in Historic Sites in Society Islands
Cemetery Tourist Spot
Take in a piece of Tahitian history at Tomb of King Pomare V, the final resting place of the island's last monarch. Pomare V (1839-1891) originally ordered that the tomb be built for his mother, Queen Pomare IV, but towards the end of his life, he had her remains exhumed and arranged for his own to be interred there. Set just back from the sea, the tomb's coral rocks are now covered in foliage, and its red wood embellishments are faded--both reminders of the monarchy's grandiose history and the passage of time. Arrange to visit Tomb of King Pomare V and other attractions in Papeete using our Papeete itinerary planner.

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.
