The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce.
Visit Taharuu Beach and Punaauia Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore hidden gems such as Taravao Plateau and Vallee de la Papenoo. Get out of town with these interesting Papeete side-trips: The Water Gardens of Vaipahi (in Taravao) and Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue). Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic scenery at Fautaua, look for gifts at Tahiti Pearl Market, stroll the grounds of Tomb of King Pomare V, and get a sense of history and politics at Assemblee de la Polynesie francaise.
