Destination Guide - Tahiti
Tahiti, or French Polynesia, comprises 118 islands spread over 5,179,000 square kilometres of the South Pacific – probably too much to take in during one trip. Bora Bora is known as a honeymoon hotspot; Tahiti for those who like a livelier dining and shopping scene with their relaxation; Moorea for a quieter alternative just next door to the action. And if these three don’t appeal, you’re not far down the list.
Tahiti offers a mild tropical climate throughout the year. November through February is generally the wettest period.
Getting there and around
Tahiti is the only island offering any real method of public transportation, in the form of buses. Hire cars are an option on many islands. There are regular ferries between Tahiti and Moorea and various other ferry routes between islands.
