Authentically Tahitian

Redefine Luxury Travel to French Polynesia with Tahiti Legends

When it comes to exotic, tropical getaways, French Polynesia is often one of the first destinations that comes to mind. From Tahiti to Bora Bora, those sun-soaked islands have drawn in travelers from across the world with their jaw dropping landscapes, crystal clear waters, romantic atmosphere, and local charm. Though the popularity of the region continues to grow, there are still plenty of opportunities to uncover the hidden gems and experience the natural, authentic traditions of the islands’ culture. Our local partners, Tahiti Legends, work hand in hand with our advisors to ensure you get a one-of-a-kind trip specially tailored to meet your needs. Whether you are looking for a relaxing getaway to celebrate a special occasion or want to enjoy the vibrance of the islands, there is something for everyone.

Plan Your Trip

Beyond Romantic Allure

Beyond Romantic Allure

A longstanding destination for honeymooners and couples celebrating milestone anniversaries, Tahiti’s appeal goes further than the overwater bungalows (though we admit, those are pretty spectacular!) Throughout French Polynesia, the culture of the islands is centered around preserving the stunning landscapes and showcasing their timeless traditions with every traveler who visits their tropical paradise, which adds to the intimate atmosphere of the islands. In between romantic dinners and relaxing on the beach, head into the lush rainforest to see some of the island’s many waterfalls within the foothills of Mount Orohena, the dwelling place of the ancient gods, according to ancient legend. Visit one of the ancient temple sites on the charming isle of Huahine and experience the very best of old Polynesia. Or witness the grafting process at a pearl farm on the secluded atoll Ahe. No matter which island in French Polynesia calls to you, the traditions and local roots remain true.

Paradise’s Hidden Gems

Though the main island of Tahiti tends to be the landing spot for most travelers, the other islands within French Polynesia offer their own unique shade of Polynesian culture and tropical paradise. The island of Raiatea, often considered the birthplace of Polynesia, is brimming with ancient sites within its lush jungles. Explore the Taputapuatea Marae, a UNESCO World Heritage Site on a private ATV tour, or set sail on a luxurious private catamaran that is reminiscent of the journeys of the ancient Polynesians. For a quieter getaway, head to Manihi to enjoy several leisure water activities in its gentle waves like snorkeling and drift diving. Or experience what the islets are famous for: cultivating the rare Tahitian Black Pearl to take home after your journey. With connections across the islands, Tahiti Legends works to ensure your trip is unforgettable through these exclusive experiences. 

For the Beach Lovers

While the islands have many adventures beyond the sandy shores, the pristine beaches, warm waters, and azure lagoons are the reason travelers return year after year. For the postcard-worthy getaway complete with the coveted overwater bungalows, head to islands of Bora Bora and Moorea. Bora Bora’s iconic backdrop of Mount Otemanu set within the turquoise waters sprinkled with lush isles is famous for a reason. With Tahiti Legends as local partners, our advisors grant you exclusive access to some of the most popular adventures, like a private 4×4 Jeep Safari complete with lunch on a local motu before taking a dip in the warm crystal waters. Or set sail on a private boat to experience the beauty of the coral reefs and marine life. In Moorea, travelers and locals alike enjoy the slower pace of life within the quaint villages that are sprinkled along the endless shore of pristine beaches. Whether you wish to remain in the shallow waters on a traditional outrigger canoe tour to swim with stingrays and blacktip sharks or head out into the open ocean to experience humpback whales and spinner dolphins in their natural habitat, the choice is yours.

Beneath the Surface

Beneath the Surface

The stretches of white sand with panoramic views are only half of what make Tahiti special. Beneath the gentle waves lies a completely different world brimming with an array of ecosystems and colorful wildlife waiting to be explored. The islands’ location and layout are home to some of the world’s most well-preserved coral reefs, making it a bucket list destination for scuba divers and snorkeling enthusiasts. Regardless of your experience level, there are plenty of opportunities to discover the underwater world at several of the islands, such as Rangiroa and Fakarava. Nicknamed the infinite lagoon, Rangiroa’s unique position within the Pacific Ocean offers a variety of world-class dive sites perfect for visitors to see one of the largest natural aquariums. For untouched beauty, head to Fakarava, a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, to be immersed in the rich ecosystem. Be sure to visit the hidden underwater valley known as Shark’s Hole to witness lemon, whitecap and hammerhead sharks in their natural environment!

For Those Seeking Seclusion

Sometimes island life is experiencing the culture and quaint villages of Polynesia, yet there is something magical about escaping to one of the more remote atolls within the region to connect with the land and people around you. With Tahiti Legends’ local connections on each of the islands, you can relax and unplug from the rest of the world while being treated like royalty on what feels like your own private island. Atop the Tropic of Capricorn south of the main island lies the Austral Islands, which boasts an intimate community of leaf-weaving artisans and azure waters perfect for spotting the yearly migration of humpback whales. Head to the relaxing atoll of Ahe, the go-to getaway for local Tahitians, and experience the laidback lifestyle of Polynesia complete with visits to local pearl farms or private fishing excursions. Escape to the atoll of Tikehau, the infamous pink sand island, to discover your own stretch of private beach while out on a leisure bike ride. With so many atolls and inlets preserved by the locals, there are plenty of places to escape the hustle and bustle of life and enter a relaxed state of mind.

Awaken the Senses

Beyond unwinding to the sound of ocean waves, engage the rest of your senses with a visit to the islands’ iconic vanilla plantations and indulge in one of the world’s most coveted imports. On the island of Taha’a (also known as Vanilla Island) the enticing aroma of vanilla surrounds you the moment you step off the boat and onto the pristine beaches. Culinary enthusiasts can delight in the unique gastronomy of the island’s local cuisine and specialty cocktails with vanilla as the shining star while enjoying the landscapes and lush vegetation the island has to offer. In between experiencing the vanilla plantations, Taha’a is brimming with diverse forests perfect for hiking, discovering ancient remnants among the vegetation, and stops at local banana and taro plantations along the trails.
