At the very mention of Tahiti the mind delights - idyllic, isolated islands of striking mountain peaks and turquoise lagoon waters. Quite simply – paradise.
The iconic Overwater Bungalows and coconut tree hammocks are waiting for you to enjoy but Tahiti offers you a complete holiday experience and one that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. The beauty of the Tahitian lagoons and the warmth of the Tahitian people are famous the world over, but it is the Tahitian culture which will add a rich and unforgettable flavour to your trip. It is a living culture and it is as vibrant today as it was many years ago.

When to visit
Our tip is not to choose your travel dates based solely on weather conditions and seasons.
The majority of the time Tahiti is sunny, hot and fabulous! Our team has visited Tahiti in every possible month and we have experienced a range of weather conditions. You may book to travel in the drier cooler month of July and have the unfortunate experience of a rainy holiday, just as you may book your holiday in a traditionally wetter month and see nothing but sunshine and blue skies every day! We simply can’t predict the weather!
Whilst resorts differ, generally low season accommodation prices are from 20 January – 31 May and 1 November – 20 December. High season is 1 June – 31 October and 21 December – 19 January. The Christmas and New Year periods, as well as Easter, are referred to as the Festive Season and often attract surcharges.
Flight schedules play an important role in planning a trip to The Islands of Tahiti. Flights are not scheduled every day and do vary at different times of the year depending on your departure city in Australia. Generally an itinerary will need to be either 5, 7, 9, 12 or 14 nights. There are of course exceptions to this general rule!
Remember that due to the arrival & departure times of aircraft from Australia, most itineraries will require 2 nights on the island of Tahiti (1 pre and 1 post) before/after travelling out to the other islands, so factor this in to your plans.
We ask this question as it gives us a starting point in recommending particular islands or resorts to you. A 7 night holiday in a garden room at a fabulous little 2 star hotel is obviously not in the same price range as a 10 night holiday staying in an overwater bungalow with a private plunge pool at a 5 star resort! It all depends what you are wanting AND how much you have to spend.
We are here to help you get the most out of your trip to Tahiti – to create the perfect holiday package for you. We are not in the business of selling you things just because you have the budget for it so don’t be afraid to let us know how much you want to spend! You can trust our Specialist Tahiti team to help you plan your perfect trip.
There is an island for everyone!
Try to think what type of holiday you are imagining – do you want to be active and have a range of activities available to you like hiking or snorkelling? Or do you prefer to have a lazier, float in the lagoon, swing in a hammock and sip on a cocktail type of a trip?
Check out our islands section for detailed information about all of the islands to help you decide and of course don’t forget we are on hand to help you if you think they all look too amazing and you can’t decide as you want to see them all!
