Which Tahiti Island is Best for You?

Published 1st Mar 2023

Which Tahiti Island should you choose for your tropical Pacific getaway? It’s not an easy choice as the Society Islands in French Polynesia consist of 14 separate islands – each providing their own unique flavour and experiences for tourists. Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea – there are so many great destinations dotted throughout this small pocket of the Pacific, that it can be tricky deciding on the best one for you and your travel group.

If you are planning a Tahiti holiday, then let the experts at Spacifica Travel help you make a decision on the ideal islands for your needs. Breaking down each of the main islands and discovering which type of tourist they are best suited to will allow you to make a more informed choice on where you should spend most of your time while exploring the Islands of Tahiti.

Why You Should Stay in Papeete

No matter which island you end up at, you will first have to fly into Papeete – the islands’ capital city on Tahiti. However, even if you plan on exploring some of the neighbouring islands, there is still a lot to love about staying in this bustling, energetic city. Given its denser population, Papeete has some of the best shopping and dining destinations amongst the islands, a large market that is over 150 years-old, and some fascinating cultural spots and historic museums.

Papeete is ideal for family groups who need adventures and activities that cater to a range of age groups. There are plenty of great tours you can take into the island, but families can also spend a day entertaining themselves at the beaches and lagoons surrounding the city. If you are looking to book a Tahiti holiday package for your family, then make sure that Papeete features heavily in your planning.

Why You Should Stay in Bora Bora

Bora Bora is one of the most iconic islands in French Polynesia and features on many people’s bucket list for travel destinations. And it’s easy to see why! People from all ages love to book Bora Bora holiday packages for its breath-taking scenery, luxury accommodation options, and unforgettable experiences.

Surrounding a large clear lagoon, Bora Bora is for families and couples who want comfort, relaxation, and the experience of staying in a secluded tropical paradise. Whether you are seeking romance in a Bora Bora honeymoon package or a taste of luxury in one of the many stunning resorts dotted throughout the island, Bora Bora has earned its world renown for a very good reason. It’s simply too beautiful to resist and with a range of great activities available on the island and in the lagoon, there is an ample amount to keep your days occupied.

Why You Should Stay in Moorea

Moorea is an island just to the east of Tahiti, and can be easily reached via a short boat trip after flying in to Papeete. While its spectacular scenery certainly creates a romantic backdrop for couples, the real draw of Moorea are the adventures that can be enjoyed. With towering mountains, lush rainforests, and vibrant lagoons, Moorea is perfect for older families and travelling groups who want to experience the excitement of South Pacific living.

This isn’t to say that Moorea compromises on comfort. Quite the opposite, as this island is home to luxury resorts and all the modern amenities you need to cruise through your holiday. It strikes the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation, making it a great choice for larger groups, couples, and families who want a bit of both in their tropical getaway.
