The Adventure Guide of French Polynesia


TAHITI This island is a surfer's paradise. Not a surfer? No problem! Us gals jumped on a boat to catch the action, hiked, ate, and drank our way just as sufficiently through this beautiful island.

Stay: This was our Airbnb; White Sand Villa - a huge house perfect for 4-6 people outside of the bustling Papa'ete on the Route de Teahupo'o only about 15 minutes from the world renown surf break Teahupo'o. Come to surf it? This nestled gem is right where you want to be.




Activities:

Sandbar off Vaira'o - This was a favorite! We grabbed kayak's from our airbnb and took them up and down the coastline, then about 30 mins off the coast to this sandbar where we jumped out on the sand and snacked while looking back at the island from the sand on the sea. Such a rad view!
