French Polynesia is often the dream of a lifetime. Set out to explore the most beautiful beaches in the world, disconnecting from everyday life and immersing yourself in nature, more than ever. Traveling to Tahiti means discovering this special bond with the natural elements, experiencing exceptional adventures, and recharging your batteries in a world of unparalleled beauty.
Your New York - Papeete flight takes you to Tahiti, the main island of French Polynesia. A tour of the island will allow you to discover all the white and black sand beaches, magnificent waterfalls, and majestic mountains that define the islands of the Society Archipelago.
From the Papeete airport (PPT) and harbor, you can travel to many polynesian islands. Plan a few days to discover Tahiti, then take a plane or boat to discover the other islands of French Polynesia. Indeed, the islands of Tahiti are numerous; 118 islands and 5 archipelagos to discover! So, if your travel dates are flexible, don’t hesitate to plan enough time to visit at least 2 or 3 islands. You have a lot to do in French Polynesia! Moorea, Bora Bora, Rangiroa, Fakarava, Rurutu or Hiva Oa are only a few examples of the possibilities.
To plan your Polynesian itinerary, choose the landscapes that catch your eye. The steep cliffs of the Marquesas Islands, the lush mountains overlooking the lagoon of the Society and Austral islands, or the incredible lagoons of the atolls? Each type of island and each archipelago has its own specificities, activities, and culture.
To calculate the price of the trip to the island of your choice, search for its airport in our travel booking platform: several islands are available for a codeshare flight with Air Tahiti Nui's partner.
Best things to do in The Islands of Tahiti
There are countless beaches in French Polynesia... each island has its own privileged places for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, surfing, or doing any other activity on the water! The Polynesian lagoons are beautiful and full of life. Make the most of your trip to Tahiti by scuba diving, swimming with rays and sharks, learning to surf, or taking a boat or jet ski ride.
Outside the water, there are plenty of activities to enjoy as well. Wonderful hikes await you and offer unique views of the islands and lagoons. Bicycle tours, horseback riding and high rope courses are also available. If you want to experience something new and fly above the islands, why not try paragliding, parachuting or a panoramic flight in a helicopter?
Near the water or in the mountains, you can also discover the Marae, sacred places of the Polynesian culture. This ancestral culture is still an essential part of Polynesian life. Through art, tattoos, songs and dances, the islands of Tahiti reveal themselves. If you travel to French Polynesia in July, don't miss the Heiva festivities and the traditional sports competitions, which will immerse you in the very heart of the culture and traditions.
