Tahiti is so full of options when it comes to diverse landscapes and exploring. Our first recommendation is to visit the spectacular Marche Papeete, the island’s large pearl, jewelry, floral, everything market. We have found prices to be incredibly reasonable and the experience is so much fun. Tourists can buy discounted pearls, deemed too low of a grade to sell in the fancy shops like Robert Wan and others.

2, you need to rent a car! Going to “the big wave” or exploring other parts of the island are hard by taxis due to the high price. We recommend renting a car at the airport and exploring the island. It may end up saving you a hefty sum.

Lastly, inland Tahiti is full of waterfalls and stunning hikes. Be sure to get there early before the crowds – and don’t expect the paved walkways like you’ll find at California national parks. The hiking is very “au natural” as they say. At the end of our hike, we found an impressive waterfall. There are so many hikes, just minutes from town.

Overall, Tahiti has so much to explore and we always wish we could spend more time on the main island. If you have any questions, let us know below!
