Tahiti, a land of paradise
Tahiti, picture perfect nature
From Bougainville to Gauguin via Jack London, numerous artists have been inspired by Polynesian landscapes. And, thanks to your round trip tickets to Tahiti, you will set foot in an incredible land of contrasts, azure lagoons and razor-edged mountains, lush jungle and kaleidoscopic wildlife. In the Fautaua Valley, the treetops are sprayed by a waterfall that drops 130 metres, splitting the sunlight into multiple rainbows. For a swim with a difference, seek out the caves fringed with ferns at Mara’a Grotto, where the clear pools are deep and water filtered through the rock rains down from the roof of the cave.
Tahiti, an ancestral culture
Polynesian culture is rich with traditional customs and ancestral skills. Booking flights to Tahiti will enable you to step back in time to the era of the early colonies, with a visit to Fare Hape, an archaeological and ceremonial site. Here the stone remains tell us about the way of life of the first inhabitants of the archipelago. For an unusual visit, head to the James Norman Hall Home where you can discover the daily life of a writer in Polynesian between the two world wars, through archives and period furniture.
Tahiti, an energy that nourishes the heart
Tahiti has a well-guarded secret: mana is a vital force which is drawn from nature and which feeds the soul. Thanks to our Tahiti holiday offers, you will discover that the warmth of the island is above all human, as you stroll among the stalls at the Mapuru a Paraïta, the largest artisanal market in Papeete, where sellers will laud the qualities of objects made in wood or with pearls. Once you've done your shopping, take a moment to recharge your batteries in the Paofai Gardens: from here you can watch the sun setting over the sea. All you need is a plane ticket to Tahiti to take you straight to paradise.

Description

Tahiti's best known symbol and it's finest ornament, the tiare (Tahitian gardenia) is a tropical bush which is immediately identifiable with its beautiful white flowers with six petals. These flowers are used to make monoi, the Tahitian scented oil, but they are also used in the flower garlands that are so symbolic of Tahiti. On this special day, flower garlands will decorate (even more than usual) the institutions of Papeete, while a competition will reward the most beautiful flower crowns.
