About Papeete, Tahiti

The largest of the Society Islands in French Polynesia, Tahiti held a magical attraction for artist Paul Gauguin and writer Robert Louis Stevenson. To understand why, simply listen to the winds whistling through casuarina trees on a secluded black-sand beach, or stroll through beautiful botanical gardens and marvel at island flora.

Go to the day markets and the night food trucks. If you have the late night flight out, there is a restaurant just up the hill from the airport with a blue roof called Oceans that has great Chinese food with a local twist. It was delicious and a huge meal. We didn't do the hotel stay through the PG, but just checked our luggage at the airport for $9 per bag, and walked to the Intercontinental to spend the day there by the pool free of charge. The IC is pretty touristy but a pretty view of Moorea and a nicer place to spend the day than the airport.

If only in port for the day, take the ferry across to Moreea island. Then grab a taxi to a resort in the lagoon. The lagoon is just so clean and clear, great for snorkelling. Kid friendly and family safe.

I really did not care for Papeete. The area where the ship docks and surrounding store areas could be cleaner. There was really not much to buy unless you were in search of pearls. Most everything is very expensive and it is not a shoppers paradise. As for tours, not really much to see that I would consider interesting.

We signed up for the Paul Gaugan tour. We thought our tour included time at a lovely garden. Museum was OK but our tour person was useless and couldn't anser the our questions. I followed a different tour director around near the end when I overheard her speak.

We were there on a Sunday, everything was closed, so if you happen to go on a sunda, try to book a tour around the island so you have something to do.
