Tahiti is an exciting place full of unfamiliar culture and unique experiences. We want to help you get started on planning your own adventure to Tahiti. Here are our top five tips to help you plan a great trip to Tahiti.
1. When to Go
Tahiti is one of the few locations that offers warm, tropical weather year round. However, some months tend to be more ideal for vacations than others. There are two seasons in Tahiti: summer (November through April) and winter (May through October). Tahiti weather is warmer and more humid during the summer, with daily high temperatures of about 85° F and lows of 70°F. During this period, Tahiti still averages more sunshine hours than Honolulu. In the winter months, the climate is cooler, with drier air and daily high temperatures of about 82°F and lows of 70°F.
2. Who to Travel With
Tahiti is a place you’ll want to share with someone else. As Tahiti is considered to be the “Island of Love,” it would be the perfect place to spend your honeymoon. A family vacation to Tahiti could also be a great experience for all, thanks to its wide range of activities for all ages.
3. Where to Stay in Tahiti
Compare the location, services, and prices of different Tahiti resorts. Every resort has its own unique features, such as spas, guided tours, or even snorkeling. Interior design and decorations as well as views of the surrounding lagoons and reef contribute to the overall aesthetic quality of the resort. In short, choose what will cater to your needs.
4. How Long to Stay
Most resort packages require a minimum of 6 days/5 nights but can easily be extended. There are many islands and activities for you to explore not only in Tahiti, but also in the surrounding areas, such as Bora Bora and Moorea. With so many Tahiti packages to choose from, many of which include a 2–3 day visit to the islands near Tahiti, it would be a shame to miss out.
5. What to Pack
Most items you’d bring to the beach, sunglasses, sunscreen, and swim suits, should go into your suitcase for Tahiti. Pack protective footwear to prevent cutting your feet on coral or a stonefish while wading through the water. Remember too, you’re on vacation: a camera is essential for taking pictures and capturing memories.
A trip to Tahiti is a fantastic way to spend a vacation or honeymoon, so it’s essential to be prepared for it. By following these five tips, you can ensure a great trip.
