Trip Planner: South Pacific / French Polynesia / Society Islands / Tahiti / Taravao / The Water Gardens of Vaipahi
Take a pleasant stroll through The Water Gardens of Vaipahi, an immaculate public park. Spot, sniff, and photograph over 75 different species of plants that surround the water features of this well-maintained garden, which stretches just over a hectare (2.5 acres). Have a picnic at the foot of the waterfall, head to the souvenir shop to pick up a memento, and read the informational sheet to learn about the history of the park, built on the site of a "marae" (sacred temple). While you can tour the attraction in a relatively short amount to time, several hiking routes starting from here let you extend your visit. Onsite restrooms and a shelter for shade make this a convenient and comfortable place. Add The Water Gardens of Vaipahi to your Taravao travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Taravao trip planner.

The different kinds of plants have a little explanation about the origin, the use... You can complete this stroll through two loops of small excursions from 1 hour to 2 hours depending on your motivation. A shop at the entrance, toilets are open until 5 pm I think and you can buy fruit and vegetables to the outside. An activity for the young and old!
We stopped here as part of a round island bus tour. Lovely scenery and beautiful photo opportunities. more »
Very neat gardens with some hiking trails, plus it's free. Great for a relaxing walk or a solid hike. Can be muddy if it rained recently.
Small public garden with waterfall. Quick stop, with restrooms. Locals selling fruits. Not much here, ,30 mins Max to see it all.
Beautiful place to discover, in family or between friends. The flora and fauna are vast and you learn a lot of thing. A beautiful waterfall to admire, bridges to go, fish to contemplate a hike at the top of the Hill and a small snack at the beginning with local products for sale. Small flat on algae that grow in proliferation, one has the impression that the site is not maintained often, what a pity! Otherwise it's a nice place to walk and relax.
Very nice place for family friends! A ballad dand the garden or better yet the long course in the mountains of 2 h walk. There is a first space picnic at the beginning and one at the end.
