When you arrive on this charming flower-shaped island the first thing you’ll notice is its vanilla-scented air courtesy of the many vanilla farms that cover it. The beaches of Taha’a are covered in luminous white sand that stretch out into the calm, crystal clear waters of the lagoon, which are filled with a richness of fish and coral. When you’re not out diving, you can relax at one of the many spas or overwater bungalows that dot the island.

Dive sites

The sea comes to life off the coast of Taha’a. Its water is rich with small and big fish alike, enjoying the food and safety the coral beds offer.

Paipai Pass

Trained divers, this site is for you. The pass offers experienced divers the opportunity to witness a drop off covered in yellow coral. At a depth of 25 and 30 meters (80 to 100 feet) you’ll find small caverns along its right-side wall that shelters its many white tip reef sharks. The left wall is shallower and home to wrasse, parrotfish and more.

Ruutai, Tau Tau, Taputapu

You won’t believe the crystal clear waters here with exceptional clarity up to 40 meters. Once you’re under, you’ll be amazed by the diversity of sea life on offer. The outer north reef is like a sprawling underwater metropolis filled with schools of jackfish, large Napoleon wrasse, Maori snappers, barracudas, plus black and white tip reef sharks.
