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.

Went on a circle tour including the visit to James Norman Hall's home, writer of "Mutiny on the Bounty". Really informative. Our tour guide was well informed and a good photographer.

We just relaxed at our hotel (Sofitel) for a short time before and after the cruise, so we can't really rate this port. The cruise line did not offer any shore excursions for "cruise-only" passengers, although we could have taken one through the hotel. The town is right by the dockside, so very convenient.

Dissapointing, the Tahiti of my fantasies is not the Tahiti in real life. A big tourist trap, a bit dirty and expensive to boot.
