Spending More Than 2 Weeks in Tahiti Itinerary
In two weeks or more immerse yourself in French Polynesia’s warm, welcoming culture and it’s natural wonders. Start your trip in Papeete, Tahiti where you can explore the Papeete market and take an island tour to visit waterfalls and secret beaches around the island.
Next, take a short flight to Bora Bora and stay for at least one night in a luxurious overwater bungalow perched above a crystal clear, blue lagoon. Spend your days in Bora Bora lounging on a white sand beach, hiking the lush countryside, and savoring Polynesian dishes at five star resorts. Don’t miss an opportunity to hike to the top of towering Mount Otemanu for stunning views of the island.
From Bora Bora, fly to Rangiroa, the largest coral atoll in The Islands of Tahiti. On Rangiroa, you can basically live in your swimsuit. Test your metal by scuba diving with sharks or leisurely snorkel in a technicolor coral garden teeming with marine life. Enjoy water and beach activities by day and as the sky fades from orange to purple, watch dolphins leap from the water in Tiputa Pass.
Get off the beaten track and visit the Marquesas Islands, which are some of the most remote and diverse islands in French Polynesia. These stunning islands are home to archaeological sites, volcanos, and myriad cultures. You can fly to the Marquesas from Tahiti, or hop on the Aranui 5 cargo cruise ship — one of the most unique Tahiti cruises that takes you to the islands while focusing on Polynesian culture and ancient sites.
