Guide to Tahiti

The epitome of heaven on earth

Dripping with indulgence and teeming with cosmopolitan luxury, Tahiti evokes images of crystal-blue waters, sun-kissed sandy beaches and vibrant coral reefs, though in reality it offers all of this and more. Saturated in golden sun, this otherworldly destination moves at an indolent pace where expectations are not only met but surpassed.

Beautiful and impossibly romantic, the island of Tahiti lies within the glorious archipelago of the ‘Society Islands’ within the heart of the French Polynesia. This tropical locale is brimmed with a glorious coastline, peppered with secluded beaches and drenched in glistening crystalline waters all of which is enveloped in a rich aroma of sweet wild flowers. Highly regarded as one of the ‘last untouched paradises’, Tahiti is an idyllic charter destination. With naturally made lagoons and passes which teem with abundant marine life and coral fringed reef, this superb destination is perfect for a sailing yacht charter against a backdrop of towering mountain summits.

Papeete is the bustling capital city of Tahiti and home to a warm and welcoming ambience. Take a walking tour of the lively city and discover all the treasures that this cosmopolitan capital holds. With sprawling markets selling just about anything, you can browse the array of luminous black pearls, unique Tahiti crafts, pretty floral arrangements and luscious ripe fruits.

A short cruise away, Tahiti’s tranquil sister island Moorea exudes a palpable South Seas island charm and a slow-paced way of life. Deemed as the ‘magical island’, Moorea is the epitome of a peaceful paradise vacation. Cruise along the stunning valley of Opunohu bay which is framed by verdant landscape beauty and intriguing archaeological sites. With peaceful meadows edged by peaks of luscious greenery and majestic beauty, Moorea is a wonderland of simple island pleasures.

Keen divers will adore the atolls of Tahiti where some of the most incredible dive sites in the world await amongst deserted sandy beaches and picture perfect privacy. A yacht charter will allow for true isolation with the opportunities to cruise in completely secluded areas where you can enjoy the unspoiled islets and excellent diving locations without crossing paths with anybody else.

Steeped in luxurious indulgence, avid adventure and boutique resorts, this true yachting paradise is perfect for charterers looking to be inspired as they discover Tahiti and the stunning surrounding areas of the French Polynesia to their hearts content.
