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. Put The Water Gardens of Vaipahi on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Taravao vacation route planner.

C'est gr... more »From Papeete to Taravao by West Coast you will find the gardens of Vaipahi, just before Papeari. You can't miss them: they are road and parking. It's free so don't deprive yourself of a walk along the basins or in front of the beautiful waterfall. The flora is varied, well identified. The garden and very well maintained and, whenever I went to visit friends or family, I had the impression of discovering new species. If you have some ants in the legs, 3 hikes proposed over the gardens you will have views of the beautiful lagoon. I recommend...
