Have you planned a 7 day holiday and are wondering where to go in Tahiti? 118 islands don’t make it easy but that’s what Tahiti is all about: diversity! It also depends on what you like to do so we’ve suggested 3 different itineraries. The following one is based on Tahiti originals. Every itinerary starts and finishes on the main island, Tahiti, as your flight will arrive late in the evening (coming from Australia or New Zealand) and you'll usually need to spend your first night here.


Coming to Tahiti as a couple or for a honeymoon? Be enthralled by the beauty of our two most popular islands.

  • Day 1: Tahiti
  • Day 2-4: Moorea
  • Day 4-6: Bora Bora
  • Day 6: Tahiti

Take a ferry or short plane ride to Moorea (society islands)

3 good reasons to go to Moorea:

  • It’s a natural playground (outrigger canoeing, paddle boarding, kite boarding, water skiing and surfing).
  • It has a specific Polynesian ambiance; colourful, flowered and radiant, Moorea is a pleasure for all the senses.
  • It’s a source of inspiration; many artists live on Moorea such as painters, carvers, jewelers and tattoo artists have settled down on this island.
