Papeete, Tahiti — 3 nights

The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.
We've included these beaches for you: Taharuu Beach and Punaauia Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Water Gardens of Vaipahi and Faarumai Waterfalls. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Point Venus, choose your vessel at Tahiti Trip Fishing, stop by Manapearl Tahiti, and stroll around Bougainville Park.

To see maps, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Papeete trip itinerary maker tool.

Porto, Portugal to Papeete is an approximately 26-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Porto to Papeete is minus 10 hours. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Porto in October: high temperatures in Papeete hover around 34°C and lows are around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Wed) so you can fly to Maupiti Island.

French Polynesia travel guide

4.4
Spanning an area of the South Pacific as large as Western Europe, French Polynesia includes 118 islands and atolls scattered across the blue ocean. White sand beaches (and pink and black) skirt rugged island peaks, while magnificent coral reefs form tranquil lagoons, dyed a startling blue and teeming with fish, eels, dolphins, rays, turtles, and sharks. The names Tahiti and Bora Bora conjure up images of private thatched bungalows built out over a lagoon, and couples silhouetted against the sunset. That said, a wide range of family-run hotels and bed and breakfasts offer less extravagant (and surprisingly affordable) experiences that take in more of the laid-back local culture.
