French Polynesia Islands – Society Islands

Tahiti Island
The main island of French Polynesia is Tahiti Island, located in the archipelago of Society Islands in the southern Pacific Ocean. It is the economic, cultural and political centre of French Polynesia.
Tahiti is  the largest island throughout the country, towering over the ocean like a proud and royal Queen who has fantastic tropical scenery and mountain ranges,with beautiful beachs,some good for swimming and some several unusual black sand beaches which have excellent surfing.The main attraction of the island is the incredibly beautiful and often dramatic tropical scenery with its hiking trails through tropical forest with deep valleys to refreshing and remote waterfalls, home to fields of tropical flowers and most of the island’s population.
The capital, Papeete, is located on the northwest coast with the only international airport in the region, Faa’a International Airport, situated 5 km  from the town centre.
Tahiti Accommodation is amongst the most luxurious and beautiful romantic holiday destination in the world. Here u can find a numerous hotels,luxury villas and budget accommodation. Most of the five star luxurious resorts have wonderful overwater bungalows which sit directly above turquoise lagoons with glass floors so you can watch tropical fish swim beneath you. However, it all comes with a expensive price: a typical ‘over the water’ bungalow costs from 300Euro per night, but if looking for something less expensive I recommend standard hotels which have a price of only 105Euro per night. Most hotels are obliged to sell only at the full rate and don’t offer Internet or direct booking specials, so another alternative would be many luxury  Pensions or Fare around the group who offer much better value for money.Such a luxury Pension room with en’suite bathroom will cost from 70Euro per night.
If you ask me all these prices make the Tahiti island to be one of the most expensive destination in the South Pacific and amongst the most expensive in the world.
But if u really want to save some money I recommend u camping J

  1. Expensive it is. I'd have liked to have read more about what attractions, sightseeing, activities, cultural experiences, unique terrain etc to attract me to Tahiti. You've posted almost all photos of resorts and the city, which are little different than many other cheaper Pacific Island destinations.
    So what's so unique about Tahiti, that I would want to pay so much to go to?

  2. Ah, finally a tropical place a hiking girl like me would love. Perhaps some day I'll make an adventure out of it. Great idea about camping btw, I'd love to spend a week or two camping in a rain forest


  3. Absolutely beautiful blog! Can I get hired to do beach ministry in Tahiti? LOL

    going to give you a follow as you asked, and a click thrown in to boot!



  4. I am looking at a trip to Fiji or Tahiti in the next 12 months. These images have a great deal to do with that. It is a true escape from the usual cityscape of modern Australia.

  5. I wish I could travel and see all of these beautiful islands…I have seen some, but there are too many beautiful places to see in this world. I always pray that God will always bless me with lot of miracles and long life to see what he creates for human being…I love u GOD.
