Tahiti - Arrive in Papeete and Enjoy a Walking Tour of Tahiti’s Largest City
The shoreline of Tahiti will shimmer with black sand and turquoise waters. Coconut palms shade the walkways in Papeete and bring the aroma of luscious fruit drifting with the sea breeze.

The rainforest at the heart of the island hides magnificent waterfalls, while the coast gives way to hidden beaches and secluded coral gardens. You will find comfort in the gorgeous views and in the contemporary luxuries of your overwater bungalow. Your iconic thatched roof and glass panels create a cozy ambiance as you look out onto the vibrant life of the lagoon. The coral will shine with kaleidoscope hues as they are surrounded by schools of tropical fish, all accentuated by the view from your private terrace.

You will begin in the city center where the Municipal Market continues to sing with life. A wooden boardwalk known as the Quay runs along the shoreline and leads to the marina where opulent yachts moor, and you can see the bustling movement in the fishing port along the shores of Motu Uta. Move next to see a traditional pearl farm to learn how the quality of a pearl is measured, and then continue on to the jeweler’s studio to learn more about the craftsmanship and artistry involved.
