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.

Blew it at this port. Went with some other folks from our roll call to visit a resort. Very spendy and we would have been better off checking out the port rather than spending the day there. The lunch was fantastic but way more than we could eat. My wife ordered a Mai Tai at the infinity pool swim-up bar and then after lunch bought us each a beer there as well. When she closed out the tab she found that the Mai Tai was charged at $24 and the beers were $8 each. Bah. Total rip -off. Ah, well. Live and learn. Next time we will definitely do something else.

No excursion. It is nice to walk around and visit the shops, especially the two story marketplace. We enjoyed street entertainment almost everywhere we went.
