Tahiti - Overview

Covering over two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean and comprising 118 islands, Tahiti spreads over five great archipelagos and an area as large as Western Europe. Jagged peaks crown many islands, while others appear to barely float above the breaking waves.

The three archipelagos most sought by visitors are the Society Islands, consisting of Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea and Taha'a; The Tuamotu Atolls or "Tahiti's Strand of Pearls", include the atolls of Rangiroa, Manihi, Tikehau, and Fakarava; and the Marquesas, or "The Mysterious Islands."

The two other archipelagos, the Austral Islands and the Gambier Islands, lie to the south and the southeast, respectively, of the Society Islands. While very few travelers venture to these remote islands, the pristine environment does not disappoint those that do.

Tahiti is so unique for visitors.

Closer than You Think

Easier to travel to than you might imagine, Tahiti's Faa'a Airport, well serviced by International airlines, is under 8 hours by air from Los Angeles airport, with private jets and charters a popular means of traveling to Tahiti. As far south of the equator as Hawaii is to the north, Tahiti, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America, is halfway between California and Australia and in the same time zone as Hawaii.
