Tahiti has a beautiful waterfront where yachts, ferries and cargo boats come and go, and a thriving market full of the South Pacific atmosphere of French Polynesia. There are abundant cafés, and eateries along this strip and it's a lovely place to mill about and soak up the scene. Tahiti and Tahitian Resorts are also a famous honeymoon destination.
Tahiti's lush and rugged interior offers endless possibilities for hiking and trekking, from the leisurely to the very strenuous, and reveals a landscape of soaring peaks that rise to Mt Orohena at 2241m (7350ft). There are also wildlife tours, jungle tours and Polynesian relics - including the unusual archaeology sites, tiki and petroglyphs of Marae Arahurahu.
