  • If you are coming off a cruise ship with limited time to spend in Papeete, and without a car, then maybe this is a great place to walk around. It's a park, and not a spectacular one, along the harbor....  more »
  • The must-see Paofai Park. Very nice park for beautiful walks with its children's games and weight-training equipment for the more athletic. However be careful as this park is not very shady!
