Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Papeete: Tahiti Safari Expedition (in Arue) and Bain de Vaima (in Taravao). There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Municipal Market, look for gifts at Papeete Roulottes, take in the dramatic scenery at Faarumai Waterfalls, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Point Venus.

Rangiroa travel guide

4.6
Scuba & Snorkeling · Swim with Dolphins · Reefs
One of the largest atolls in the world, Rangiroa encircles a chilli-shaped lagoon so large, the entire island of Tahiti would fit inside of it. Two islands at the northern end of Rangiroa support the atoll's small permanent population, with a handful of paved roads, churches, resorts, stores, and gourmet restaurants. A string of uninhabited motus (islets) and sandbars form the rest of the lagoon's perimeter, rising no more than 0.9 m (3 ft) above the ocean waves, sometimes topped with swaying coconut palms. While boat trips across the lagoon and sunbathing on the remote white sand beaches are certainly blissful, the real excitement happens beneath the waves, where crystal clear waters and teeming coral reefs create an underwater Eden with some of the best diving spots in the world.

Moorea travel guide

4.5
Waterskiing & Jetskiing · Gift & Specialty Shops · Nature & Wildlife Tours
On the tattered triangle of Mo'orea, green peaks and ridges jut up out of the flat, fertile valleys. Hiking routes take you past tumbling waterfalls and ferny cliffs, to villages painted pastel and gardens filled with hibiscus. Birds of paradise fly from tree to tree, while rays, sharks, and fish of every color flit among the protective coral reefs around the island. Swim in the irresistibly warm, translucent waters of the lagoon, and head to the tiki village at night, where grass-skirted dancers shake their hips to thunderous percussion and fire dancers trace glowing trails against the darkness.
