Papeete ©
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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Taharuu Beach and Tahiti Lagoonarium. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Taravao Plateau and Bain de Vaima. Change things up with these side-trips from Papeete: Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue) and The Water Gardens of Vaipahi (in Taravao). There's much more to do: look for gifts at Tahia Exquisite Tahitian Pearls, visit a coastal fixture at Pointe Venus, ponder the world of politics at Assemblee de la Polynesie francaise, and take an in-depth tour of La Maison James Norman Hall.
