Tahiti is a luxury vacation spot and one of the most prestigious honeymoon destinations in the South Pacific. Tahiti is the largest and most famous of the 118 islands that make up French Polynesia. The island of Tahiti is home to the area’s largest airport and the city of Papeete, which is the capital of French Polynesia. Tahiti is easily accessible from both coasts of the United States and major cities around the world. Operated by the top-rated airline Air Tahiti Nui, non-stop flights from Los Angeles to Papeete, Tahiti, are approximately eight hours in duration. Receiving only 50,000 visitors per year, this exclusive island destination is a honeymooners’ paradise. The neighboring island of Moorea is also home to a number of romantic honeymoon destinations.
Planning a honeymoon in paradise is simple when you choose Tahiti. This tropical island is divided into two sections known as Tahiti Nui and Tahiti Iti, which is the island’s smaller and more rugged half. Due to its volcanic origins, modern-day Tahiti features black sand beaches made from powdery lava fragments that are juxtaposed against lush volcanic cliffs. The majority of Tahiti’s major resorts are located along the spectacular beaches of the island’s northwestern coast. The quintessential Tahitian honeymoon experience includes a traditional Polynesian breakfast delivered to your over-water bungalow on a flower-laden outrigger canoe. Tahiti is a great place to enjoy a romantic horseback ride, water sports or luxurious spa treatments.
This exotic island is known for its tropical black sand beaches, iridescent black pearls and carefree atmosphere. In 2010, former American Idol winner and country star Carrie Underwood visited Tahiti with her hockey-player husband Mike Fisher. During the honeymoon, the doting couple went snorkeling, swam with sharks in the island’s stunning lagoons, and saw the island’s most majestic sights on a private helicopter tour, which is a must-do activity. The larger portion of Tahiti Nui can be explored on the island’s only major road. This six-hour, 70-mile trip takes visitors past breathtaking sea cliffs, tumbling waterfalls, ancient temples, scenic overlooks and sheltered lagoons waiting to be explored with a snorkel. Tahiti’s famous circle-island tours have been a visitors’ rite of passage for 100 years. Today, visitors can cruise, fly or drive around the island. Other important tourist attractions include the Museum of Tahiti and Her Islands and the Gauguin Museum.
Whether you and your sweetheart want to conquer a sail boat, try out ancient spear fishing techniques or learn to surf, you can do it all it Tahiti. If you visit this remarkable island, ancient Tahitian legends, world-class seafood, awesome views and beautiful beaches will make your honeymoon or romantic getaway unforgettable.
