The Water Gardens of Vaipahi, Taravao

(4.8/5 based on 80 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Vaipahi is a site to visit and revisit several times in the year in order to taste the plant beauty of the site throughout their life cycle. We discover with interest the typical plants of Tahiti and we learn, through signs placed at the foot of each species, the origin of it. We also discover throughout the nature trail the legends that has conveyed this site that breathes the mana of Tahiti. In addition, the garden is the starting point of hikes to a level accessible to the largest number and allows, to discover the beauty of the island of Tahiti on the inside (predict however, good shoes, and watch the weather notices in order not to be surprised by the bad weather)
