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.

Despite benefiting from millions of Euros from the EU, Papeete and the Tahitian Islands still seemed a little underwhelming. The ship docks in the centre of the city and it is easily accessible. Pleasant enough to visit for a beer or coffee but unremarkable otherwise. The people were warm and welcoming and that will be the abiding memory. PS avoid the tour to the ocean bore-hole, expensive and slated by all on the coach.

Nice city walks, foreshore parks and gardens. Great market for local food and pastries.

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.

Intercontinental is beautiful here. Raddison only ok. Be sure breakfast is included as it is $35.00pp! Absolutely DON"T go on the bus tour here after departing the ship. Totally boring. Opt to go directly to your hotel and enjoy the facilities.

Consider an overnight to Moorea for a one-night stay in a thatched bungalow over the lagoon. Re-join the ship in Moorea. Although expensive, it was well worth the cost. Before our excursion, we explored the shops in town and saw the nearby landmarks.
