Tahiti

Maeva to Tahiti! Tahiti is set on the Society Islands archipelago and is the largest of the French Polynesia Islands. Also known as the 'Queen of the Pacific', Tahiti can only be described by many as a true tropical island paradise. Think towering mountain peaks and crystal clear azure lagoons, colourful coral reefs and palm-fringed white beaches and you get the picture.

Tahiti and her surrounding islands are dotted with luxury island resorts, each offering guests the ultimate in facilities and stylish guest accommodation. The type of places where you can enjoy exciting adventures on land and sea - from 4-wheel drive safaris and island tours, to jet skiing, wind-surfing and scuba diving - or just simply relax on your sun-lounger and soak up the amazing vistas.

Sitting on the north-west coast of Tahiti, the capital of Pape'ete was once a meeting place for islanders to fill their calabashes with fresh water; but now it's the vibrant night-time scene and the waterfront lined with boutiques and lively traditional markets that draws the crowds.

Best time to go

Tahiti enjoys a warm tropical climate year-round, with eight hours of sunshine each day, and an average daily temp of 27C. The dry season runs from May to October and is a favourite time to visit Tahiti. The wet season hits the island between November and March and brings with it rainy spells.

Things to do

Tahiti holidays are jam-packed with things to see and do. The beaches are the main focus of daytime life but there is lots more to do besides. Water sports are great for high-energy fans with everything from water-skiing, jet-skiing and kayaking on the agenda at water sports centres around the island. The offshore coral is a favourite with both snorkellers and scuba divers. The island of Tahiti is just ripe for exploring, whether on foot, by 4-wheel drive vehicle, or quad bike. Get close to local marine life on a whale-watching trip by boat. Indulge in authentic island life with a visit to Pape'ete's public market to shop for handicrafts and souvenirs to take home. Take a ferry excursion to the sister island of Moorea.

Food and drink

Tahiti's cuisine is based around locally sourced ingredients, with fresh fish and seafood featuring on restaurant menus. Try the local Poisson Cru - raw tuna and vegetables marinated with lime juice and served with fresh coconut milk. Accompany your meal with a glass of ice cold Hinano beer.

In the evening

Evenings in Tahiti are usually hotel and resort based - what more could you need than a barbecue by the beach, a candle-lit dinner for two in an open-air over water restaurant, or occasional local dancers and live music? The main night-life on Tahiti centres around the bars and night-clubs of the island capital Pape'ete.
