Tahiti Attractions

Dramatic black sand beaches ringed with clear-as-glass turquoise ocean make Tahiti an absolute delight for the senses. This paradisiacal island is part of an archipelago of 118 islands known as French Polynesia. Tahiti is both an island and the name of a larger group of islands that includes Bora Bora and Moorea.

In keeping with Tahiti's natural beauty, there are many spots that tantalize visitors with their exquisite allure. One of the top must see places is a group of three waterfalls called Les Trois Cascades, which lies in the middle of Tahiti Nui. There's also a famous natural phenomenon called the Arahoho blowhole that treats visitors to a dramatic display as the ocean crashes though a narrow rocky opening.

Tahiti also offers visitors the full range of water sports, from windsurfing to sea kayaking to scuba diving and sailing. The beaches are perfect for lounging and enjoying the abundant sunshine. Tahiti also has a beautiful lighthouse at Pointe Venus on one of its trademark black sand beaches. In Papeete, there's a local market called Le Marche that no tourist should miss there's clothing, jewelry, food, and a range of island crafts for sale.

Most travelers arrive at the islands via Faa'a International Airport just outside of Papeete, Tahiti's capital.
