Tahiti Island Tour itinerary:

WEST COAST
MARAE ARAHURAHU
Tahiti's best example of Marae - ancient Polynesian temples and meeting places - in all of Polynesia that has been fully restored, and is now maintained like a museum. The marae is now used for the reenactment of old Polynesian ceremonies during the July Heiva Nui celebrations.

MARAA GROTTOS
Located at the foot of a cliff along the main road, visit the impressive grottos filled with a lake of pure water.

VAIPAHI GARDEN
Located in the district of Mataiea, the Vaipahi Gardens displays a wonderful selection of endemic plants set in a very exotic decor. A lovely waterfall adds up to the charm of the place. Last but not least, a charming little boutique displays handycrafts items to be purchased for souvenirs. Fresh local season fruits also available. Toilets available at this stop.

EAST COAST
FAARUMAI WATERFALL
Walk to the most impressive of the 3 waterfalls of this natural site. The surroundings have been totally rearranged for an easy access to visitors. Dip your feet in the cool spring water!

ARAHOHO BLOW HOLE
A lavatube designed by liquid lava flowing under cold and hard lava, creating a channel. When waves crash against the rocks and enter this channel, the result is a powerful sea water geyser that showers on lookers.

VENUS POINT
Located in the north on the edge of Matavai Bay, it was the special scene of successive landings of European navigators. James Cook named it after the planet in commemoration of the transit of Venus that was observed during one of his scientific voyage to Tahiti. It is also one of the most beautiful black sand beaches in Tahiti. Toilets available at this stop.

TAHARAA LOOKOUT
The Tahaaraa lookout point gives you an outstanding 360° view on part Tahiti and Moorea in the background. A stop not to be missed for some memorable pictures.
