Best activities in Tahiti
Discover easy activities in Tahiti
The second episode of the podcast invites you to discover some of the activities that you can easily do in Tahiti. Obviously, we are talking about beaches and nautical activities such as surfing, but also activities linked to the discovery of the mountains. Indeed, the island of Tahiti is also characterized by its deep valleys and imposing mountains. As you will discover, discovering the interior of the island with guides, on hikes or by vehicle, is very pleasant and easy to practice.
Hicking in Tahiti
If you are attracted by hiking activities, you can consider doing them without accompaniment, those of Vaipahi for example in Papearii are well marked. Another easy access, especially for families, is the Papenoo valley.
However, it is recommended to hire a guide to accompany and advise you. The guide will be able to teach you more about the fauna or the culture of the island. If you have hired a vehicle, you can easily tour the interior of the island and access the waterfalls and interior valleys, the most popular being the Papenoo Valley. You can also rent electric bikes to explore the interior of the island for a unique experience.
Where to surf
Whether you are a surfer, beginner or advanced, you will find plenty of spots throughout the year, with Papenoo and Papara being the most popular. If you choose the Taharu spot in Papara, you will find a restaurant by the sea to eat. Reef sports are more demanding and recommended only for the more experienced.
For those who want to learn, surf schools can offer surf sessions, but you will also find kite surfing or wakeboarding schools. More accessible for all audiences, paddleboarding is also widely practiced in Tahiti and the islands and most hotels offer it. You can also rent them for the day or half a day.
Another activity that you can easily practice is snorkeling … The west coast of Tahiti is sheltered by a lagoon, and it is on Punaauia that you will find the most suitable beaches for easy snorkeling. A special feature to discover on the east coast of Tahiti: the black sand beaches. Indeed, the island of Tahiti being volcanic, the sand is therefore deep black, which may seem surprising to you! Pointe Venus beach is therefore an interesting stop for the beauty of its beach, its historical interest, and you will also find on the site a restaurant as well as artisanal products …
From the sea to the mountains, many possibilities are available to you! Thus, the island of Tahiti offers many possibilities for discovery, guided or on your own.
