Island romance at its finest

Tahiti actually consists of 118 separate islands and atolls, from the main island of Tahiti itself to Bora Bora, Moorea and Tetiaroa. Here you'll find an array of things to do, from shopping at local markets to exploring luscious island landscapes and sinking beneath the waves for some water-based activities. Magical waterfalls, gorgeous peaks and white-sand beaches await, along with tiny villages and friendly locals that will welcome you to experience la vie heureuse - a happy life. 

Tahiti makes an ideal family holiday destination, but it's also very popular with loved-up couples - Bora Bora is the ultimate romantic destination. With its lush flora, white beaches and beautiful azure waters, this paradise on earth is a honeymooners delight. 

Visit Tahiti once and be changed forever. Talk to your World Travellers consultant about how to make the most of a holiday to these enchanting islands and they'll be able to find or tailor a package just for you.

Things you should know about Tahiti

Tahiti was settled by Polynesians but was annexed by France in 1880. Today, Reo Tahiti is still widely spoken, but French is the official language of the island.

Va’a (outrigger canoe) is the national sport of Tahiti, and Tahitians are the world champions. You can watch the sport in action during a three-day ocean race - it’s a spectacle not to be missed!

The tiare is the national emblem of French Polynesia, and it’s worn by Tahitians behind their ear. If worn on the left side, it means you’re taken, but if worn on the right it indicates you’re single and looking for love.
