Tahiti is the largest and most recognizable island in the French Polynesia and has to rank as one of the most dazzling places we’ve ever seen. It’s a place of delightful coves, heavenly bays, and breathtaking lagoons. This is the place where the real beauty of the natural world spreads its wings and shows you how amazing it can be sometimes.
For your next travel experience, you need to head for the South Pacific and check out this wonderful archipelago. This stunning place has almost mythical-like qualities and ranks as a top destination for many travelers. If you’ve never been before you’re probably going to want some ideas for things to do while you’re here. So, this is a guide to some of the best ways to have fun in Tahiti.
Spend the night in an overwater bungalow
Seriously, we cannot stress enough how much you need to do this. It’s one of those unique experience you may not ever get the chance to do again. It definitely makes you feel more attuned to the surrounding landscape, and you get a dose of the culture here as well. Spend the night drifting in and out to the soothing sound of the ocean lapping, and go snorkeling in the clear blue waters just outside your bungalow! This is one of those things you see people do in the movies and think how cool it is, and now you have the chance to do it yourself.
Feed sharks and stingrays
If you’re feeling a little braver, you might consider trying out one of these tours where you get to feed sharks and stingrays. Book one of these tours, and you will actually be able to get into the water and feed these majestic fish! Don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe, and you have very little to worry about. Still, it might take people of a strong disposition to want to be a part of this sort of tour. We think this is one of the best things to do in Tahiti, but we can understand why it may not appeal to others!
Check out a lagoon
There are a lot of stunning lagoons in Tahiti, which only offers more opportunity to experience some of the gorgeous marine life. If you’re looking for a water-based adventure in Tahiti, we would highly recommend going snorkeling in one of the mesmerizing lagoons here. Some of Tahiti’s best scenery lies beneath the glassy surface of the ocean, and, by submerging you can enjoy this up close and personal. There is so much you’re going to be missing out on if you don’t at least check this out.
Massages are a big part of island life, and, if you’re offered the opportunity to take one, you should. We would ideally urge you to go for a traditional Tahitian massage, which involves the use of monoi oil. It’s soothing, relaxing, and smells wonderful, and it’s the perfect way of relaxing you and getting you in the right mindset to enjoy the rest of what Tahiti has to offer.
This tropical paradise offers the perfect chance for relaxation and unwinding. You can enjoy the serenity and peace that an island vacation brings, and there are plenty of awesome things to do while you’re there as well. These are just a few of the things we can think up to keep you entertained when you visit Tahiti. We hope you enjoy this delightful island just as much as we did.
