South Pacific travel guide

South Pacific - Tahiti & French Polynesia (Chapter)

5th Edition Oct 2012

This is the Tahiti & French Polynesia chapter from Lonely Planet's South Pacific guidebook.

Just the name Tahiti conjures up centuries of legend and lifetimes of daydreams. Its 18th-century reputation as a wanton playground of flower-bedecked Polynesians in an Eden-like setting has effortlessly morphed into a 21st century image of a chic holiday haven for honeymooners.

  • watch the best of the best shake their hips at the Heiva festival's dance competitions in Pape'ete in July
