Helicopter tour at Tahiti
Tahiti is known as the Mountainous Island and the Queen of the Pacific!
Tahiti is dominated by mount Orohena and Aorai. It has been 200 years since Captain James Cook first anchored off the shores of Tahiti. However, it still evokes a sense of the idyllic South Seas. Papeete is the capital city of Tahiti, situated on the Northwest coast of the island. Papeete offers a gorgeous harbour with a new cruise terminal where all cruise ships depart from.
If you are looking for nightlife, within the city of Papeete is the only place you'll find any. At night in the center of downtown Papeete the streets come alive. You'll find Roulettes (open air dining carts) with local cuisine, live music (on weekends) and many bars.
Tahiti is the largest island throughout the country. The island of Tahiti towers over the ocean and offers beautiful mountain peaks.
The island of Tahiti has a mountainous interior that is adorned with deep valleys, high waterfalls, and clear streams. The coast of the island is rugged and home to fields of tropical flowers and most of the island's population.
There are just a handful of resorts offered on the island of Tahiti. The most popular are the InterContinental Resort Tahiti and Le Meridien Tahiti, both of which offer overwater bungalow accommodations.
