What you can expect
Visit several distinctly different islands on this eight-night “essentials” tour of The Islands of Tahiti. During your overnight stay on Tahiti, you may have enough time to venture into the bustling city center of Papeete where you’ll find the two-story Le Marche, or public market. Within, you’ll find many vendors selling everything from fresh fruit and flower crowns to strands of cultured Tahitian pearls, wood carvings, colorful pareo, woven handbags as well as Monoi Oil for your skin and hair. If you want to dine like the locals, head upstairs to the café and enjoy a cold Hinano or coconut water served inside the coconut shell and delight in one of the many options for a filling lunch.
After a brief stay on the main island of Tahiti, you’ll travel to the carefree, relaxed island of Moorea. Tahiti’s sister island is only a 25-30 minute ferry ride away from the hustle and bustle of Papeete, but you’ll quickly notice the pace of life is quieter and slower on this sleepy island. You’ll settle into the slower pace of life before you know it! During your stay, you’ll enjoy an introduction to the island while on a 4-4 safari drive of the island. Stop at several stunning viewpoints along the way and explore the foothills dotted with pineapple plantations. As the sun set each evening, be sure to try a sundown cocktail at the overwater creperie and champagne bar at your resort!
Next, you will travel to Bora Bora, a 45-minute flight from Moorea. As you approach the tiny airstrip, you’ll see why many call Bora Bora one of the most beautiful islands in the world. While being whisked across the blue waters of the lagoon, take in Mt. Otemanu’s allure and beauty as you make your way to the Conrad Bora Bora Nui. The resort is situated on it’s own large motu (islet) and has dramatic views from the entire property. Be sure to make your way to the top of the resort near the spa where you’ll find a tucked-away lookout facing Mt. Otemanu!
