Your Itinerary

    1Tahiti, Society Islands
    A favorite gathering place for office workers during the day and families at night, people come to stroll, take in the view, and dine at inexpensive food caravans (Les Roulottes). Often traditional bands play on the bandstand adding to the festive atmosphere. Roulottes open daily around 6pm. Paofai Gardens A landscaped waterfront park with a canoe launch and children’s play area, you’ll find plenty of activity to take-in during your stroll. Place Toata The outdoor amphitheater hosts concerts all year and also the national dance competition during the huge Heiva Nui festival in July. Next door, on the banks of Tipaerui River, stands the Office Territorial d’Action Culturelle, Tahiti’s cultural center and library.

    Fare is the main town on Huahine, consisting of a row of stores, a wharf, and a swimming beach. Starting at the Restaurant New Temarara, follow the promenade north along the waterfront to the Fare Public Beach, which runs along the west side of the main street. Bora Bora lies in the distance. Shops are open Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm and Saturdays from 8:30am to noon, and are closed Sundays. The Handicraft Center at the village exit (south end) is also closed on Sundays. Telephone booths are operated with local phone cards. Rental car offices, restrooms, restaurants, shops, and main facilities are across from the main street. Heading north through town, the post office is on the right.

Its sand-bottom, shallow lagoon is perfect for snorkeling. Matira Beach’s crystal blue water and white, powdery sand curve to the west of Matira Point.

    Larger than the island of Tahiti, Rangiroa’s turquoise lagoon has been call “God’s Aquarium” by divers and snorkelers from around the world. View myriad dazzling tropical fish cavorting in one of the world’s most beautiful and richest coral reefs on a snorkeling or diving expedition. Snorkeling and diving excursions are available from The Gauguin.

    The Tuamotus are a unique string of coral ringlets that form protective circles around interior lagoons, allowing for the proliferation of rare species of both plant and marine life. Their ecosystems are so pristine that UNESCO designated the atoll of Fakarava a Biosphere Reserve. Snorkel or drift-dive the Garuae Pass to see some of the world’s most beautiful coral formations. Snorkeling and diving excursions are available from The Gauguin.
