Best Things To Do in Tahiti

One of the best ways to spend a Tahitian vacation is to lie back with a tropical cocktail in hand and bask in the sunshine at your resort of choice. You can also swim, snorkel, surf, and more at La Plage de Maui or Papenoo Beach. To find some jungly wilderness, hop a ferry to Moorea. But if you're itching for a different kind of adventure, you can hike to the gushing Fautaua Waterfall or the bustling capital city of Pape'ete
