The primary reason why so many Tahitian tourists flock to this stretch of shoreline is the sand: While many of the island's beaches boast a volcanic black hue, La Plage de Maui dazzles in pearly white. Located on Tahiti's southern shore, the clean, warm waters of the nearby lagoon are another draw – travelers say the water is unbelievably clear and the lagoon is shallow and calm. Meanwhile, the beach's snack bar serves up fresh seafood and is exceptionally popular among visitors.

The shores of Papenoo – a small village located a little more than 5 miles along the eastbound road from Papeete – are reminiscent of the island's tumultuous natural history. The Punaauai Beach (also known as the PK18 Beach due to its location on the road) features ebony sands that reach down into the clear blue waters of the South Pacific. And best of all, this beach doesn't see nearly as much tourist action as La Plage de Maui on Tahiti Iti. That said, you will have to fight for waves with the island's surfing community.

Taharuu Beach is on Tahiti's southern coast in Papara and characterized by its volcanic black sands, leafy green palm trees and its width. This beach is large, meaning there's plenty of room to spread out and soak up the sun, and it's framed by deep blue water and frothy white waves. Popular with families, locals and tourists, this beach also boasts ideal swimming conditions and you may even see some surfers working on their skills. There's also an on-site snack bar.

Papeete is the capital city of not only Tahiti but also all of French Polynesia. Inside its boundaries, which sprawl across the island's northwest coast, are opportunities to shop, to dine and to revel in the nightlife. When it comes to shopping, black pearls and island crafts are the main items to look for. The Municipal Market in Papeete is worth a visit, too. Filled with fresh veggies and fruits, meat and fish, flowers and artsy goods like hats and souvenirs, the market receives high praise from recent visitors.
