Many of Tahiti’s highlights are located close to Faaa, so it is a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Two sights that should be at the top of every visitor’s list is the fascinating Place Jacques Chirac and the ever-popular Parc Bougainville. Also worth checking out are the Cathedrale de L'lmmaculee Conception and the Black Pearl Museum.
Faaa has a long and proud sporting history. Join local fans at Stade Pater, Papeete, home to the A.S. Pirae soccer team in winter and the A.S. Dragon. Depending on the score, either celebrate or commiserate with local fans after the full-time siren blows in a nearby pub.
For a real taste of Faaa, consider booking a room close by in one of the area’s charming bed and breakfast or hotel options. The Tahiti Airport Motel, the InterContinental Resort Tahiti and the Hotel Tahiti Nui, Papeete are just some of the many great places to stay around here.
