The Islands of Tahiti is the romantic destination ‘par excellence’, with glorious sunshine, white sandy beaches and warm clear, turquoise lagoons. It is a place where you can leave all your cares behind you and focus your attention on the essential, yourselves. A vacation in the island paradise of French Polynesia is a shared experience that you’ll never forget.

The Islands of Tahiti is the perfect destination for loving couples. Basking in the sun, taking excursions on land and sea, being pampered in a hotel spa, enjoying delicious cuisine and generally making the most of being together. Here is our suggested itinerary for a 3 day romantic break in Tahiti, with a day trip to the sister island of Moorea.

Days 1 & 2


Day 1 – Part 1

Tahiti peninsula

Arrival at Tahiti-Faa’a International Airport: depending on your budget, you can stay in one of the hotel resorts on the coast, or go directly to the Tahiti Iti peninsula, to check into your family run Tahitian Guesthouse.

There is a choice of activities in the hotel resort, including a scuba diving session and a relaxing traditional Polynesian massage in the hotel spa. On the peninsula, you can take a boat excursion on the lagoon, to see the legendary wave at Teahupoo up close. Then you’ll continue to Fenua Aihere, the uspoiled luxuriant countryside of Tahiti Iti, where you can go ashore for a short hike through the forest.

Diner at sunset

Romantic sunset and admiring the starry night sky: in the evening, you embark on a sunset cruise to admire the glorious red, orange and golden sunset from the sea.

Day 2 – Part 1

Land and sea activities

Nautical adventure and relaxation: begin the second day with a paddleboard or va’a (Polynesian outrigger canoe) session together. Enjoy the sunshine, the soft black sandy beach and the crystal clear water of the lagoon.

If you prefer to stay on land, take a guided excursion to the valley of Papenoo, to discover the interior of the island and learn about Tahiti’s history.

Day 2 – Part 2

Yoga and romantic diner

Yoga on the beach and a romantic dinner: at the end of the afternoon, find a peaceful spot on the beach or in a park for a yoga session as you watch the glorious sunset. Let the peace and tranquilty envelop you both, as you stretch and relax together in perfect harmony.

In the evening, go to one of Tahiti’s gastronomic restaurants for a romantic dinner for two, or to a typical Tahitian foodtruck, where you can taste the local cuisine in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Day 3


Day 3 – Part 1

Adventure time!

Day trip to Moorea: the sister island is only a 30 minute ferry ride from Papeete, and there’s plenty for you to do once you get there. Take a food tour to sample typical Tahitian cuisine. Explore the island’s interior by ebike, quad ATV, or four-wheel drive. Take a boat trip on the lagoon, and go swimming with rays and inoffensive blacktip sharks, then enjoy a picnic at the water’s edge on a deserted motu.

Day 3 – Part 2

Culture and local dances

Dance spectacle: in the evening you’ll go out to dinner at a restaurant which has a traditional Tahitian dance spectacle. Enjoy your meal, but look and learn, because you’ll probably be invited onto the stage to take a few dance steps yourself!

After this memorable evening, pack your bags, because the next day you’ll be flying off early to another paradise island in French Polynesia. There are 118 of them to choose from!
