Tahiti Travel Guide


Miles of shoreline, dozens of resorts, French cuisine to die for—Tahiti has all the making of a honeymoon destination. But beach bums often pass over Tahiti's dark sands in favor of Bora Bora's ivory shores.

When to Visit Tahiti

The best time to visit Tahiti is between May and October. Although the temperatures are balmy year-round, Tahiti's winter season enjoys less humidity during these months. Tahiti really only experiences two distinct seasons: Winter brings less rain and pleasant temperatures, while the summertime—November through April—can be unbearably hot and humid, not to mention rainy. But regardless of when you travel, you can expect hotel rates to be high.

Getting Around Tahiti

The best way to get around Tahiti is by the affordable L'Truck bus. If you're planning on doing a lot of travel throughout the island, a rental car is another good option. A bike can be a trusty steed too. For journeys to other French Polynesian islands, you'll have to book passage on a boat or airplane. Most travelers arrive into Faa'a International Airport (PPT), which is a three-mile jaunt from the capital city of Pape'ete. If a representative from your hotel isn't picking you up at PPT, you can hop into an L'Truck public bus or take one of the expensive taxis to your destination.
