Trip Planner: South Pacific / French Polynesia / Society Islands / Tahiti / Taravao / Parks / 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. Put The Water Gardens of Vaipahi on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Taravao vacation route planner.
