Amidst other great sandy getaways of the French Polynesia, the beaches of Tahiti offer exuberant activities that will embellish your vacation with moments of absolute adventure and excitement that will be remembered for a long time to come. Be it the activity of swimming in the immaculate waters or snorkeling to the depths of the sea to reveal the awe-inspiring marine life or even scuba diving sessions – the fun quotient never dies out while you are in Tahiti.

Tahiti Beach

Because of the increasing popularity that Tahiti is gaining as an ace travel destination, a number of leading resorts and hotels have mushroomed along the pristine coastline to offer all the comfort while one is away from the mundane hustle-bustle of life.

Tahiti Beach resorts

For those who just cannot get enough of the glories of beach adventure can flock to the city of Papeete on the western part of the coastline towards the south. One can also find the international airport over here. Also, those who like to travel in style and don’t mind shedding some extra money can head straight towards the Lafayette Beach. Just on the coast of this beach there are quite a few leading resorts, where one can avail rejuvenating sessions in the spa or even enjoy the evening entertainment stretching till late hours.

For those who are not putting up in one of the beach front resorts, always have the opportunity to unravel the splendors of Tahiti at one of the many open beaches. Out of the many public beaches Plage de Toarato is one place where visitors can head. The beach is ideal for swimming and runs nearly as much as half a mile in length, always abuzz with visitors yet remains clean.

Before you thought that all the beaches in Tahiti are peculiar of pristine white sands, it’s time to have a check! Although, there are many beaches boasting white sands, it comes as exception and that too a pleasant one to find black granules of sand especially at the Papera beach on the southern shores and also the Papenoo Beach on the northern side. These beaches are not as calm as the other beaches to be found in Tahiti, and this what makes them no less than a paradise who prefer to indulge in activities like that of surfing.

Papenoo Beach Surfing

Treading towards the eastern side of Papetee is Pirae, where one can find another black sand shoreline. Moving ahead from Tahiti via a ferry ride is the Moorea Island which is particularly known for the many exciting beaches island boasts of. For those who would like to indulge in a bit of snorkeling and sailing or even kayaking, the Hauru Point on the northern side in the western region is ideal for such activities. Further ahead, a lot of public beaches on the eastern side of the Island is rather calm and ideal for swimming in the seas or even diving in the depths of the sea for some snorkeling sessions seems like it on the Teavaro public beach.

Tahiti diving

All in all, coming to Tahiti is going to be a fun-filled affair not only for honeymooners but anyone who’s quite a traveler at heart.

    Tahiti is such a beautiful place that it is said that-

    As this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land,
    So in the soul of man, there lies one insular Tahiti.
    Full of peace and joy,
    But encompassed by all the horror of half known life.
    God keep thee push not off from that isle,
    Thou canst never return!

    Cheers! :-)

    When you hear Tahiti, expectations arise.
    It has beautiful waters and beach..

    I highly recommend it if you enjoy doing water excursions!

    You can swim along with the stingrays,sharks and dolphins..

    But plan well and go,otherwise it may turn out more expensive thanyou had imagined.

    A great place for a peaceful and adventure-filled vacation!
