The islands of Tahiti offer a world of adventure for families and children of all ages. Each of the islands offer a unique blend of accommodations and activities designed for tons of family fun. Many of the hotels offer large swimming pools – often with sand bottoms, family-size 4X4 excursion vehicles for half-and full-day expeditions into the lush interior for exploration and a picnic under a waterfall, beautiful sand beaches with calm waters, guided hiking and boat excursions with a naturalist who will provide a close study of birds, plants and marine life, and regular performances of music, sport, and dance featuring local children.

Believe it or not Tahiti is just one of the islands that make up 14 of the Society Island. It’s where the capital Papeete is located and where you start your journey. Tahiti is the largest island throughout the country and is considered the Queen of the Pacific. This invigorating city and gateway of the country, boasts world-class resorts, spas, fine dining and unique restaurants, nightclubs, vibrant markets, pearl shops, and boutiques. It gives you a perfect taste of what is to come.
After a day or so in Tahiti, visit Moorea – The Magical Island! Moorea soars magically out of the ocean in an explosion of green velvet - what you would imagine a South Seas island to be. The beauty of Moorea is unforgettable. It is the second largest of all the islands, very mountainous, with Mt. Tohivea being the highest point. If you’ve ever seen “South Pacific” it is rumored James Michener based Bali Hai on Moorea. Here you’ll find a true South Seas experience. A barefoot experience, with white and black sand beaches, multi colored lagoons, surrounded by mountains and a dormant volcano that reaches into the clouds. There are endless activities. From swimming with dolphins, scuba diving, surfing, kite surfing, 4X4 safaris, deep sea fishing, eco, cultural and nature touring, to having a private lunch on a private island called a motu. If this is too much activity for you, then sit back on your deck, soaking in the beauty and enjoy what nature has provided.
Bora Bora is the most impressive, distinctive island. Two towering peaks of sheer black rock dominate the center of the island and make an impressive backdrop to an assortment of blue waters that will dazzle the eyes. Bora Bora's lagoon is its most treasured feature, and allows the traveler many opportunities to experience it in a variety of ways. Windsurfing, jet ski across the magnificent turquoise lagoon, scuba dive, swim, bask in its warmth... the list goes on.
Bora Bora is truly an experience worth having. A wonderfully relaxing place to be, as well as a great island for you to experience, your Bora Bora vacation will never be forgotten. The perfect Bora Bora day begins with a dawn breakfast from your over-water bungalow deck, then a guided tour of the atoll on waver-runners, then a stop on a deserted beach for lunch of beachside barbecued lobster. Then perhaps there will be an hour of swimming with sharks and bat rays, schools of them mysteriously mellowed by the warm aqua waters. Spend some time shopping for black pearls in the central village of Vaitape or maybe enjoy an afternoon massage, full of locally harvested healing oils carrying a faint sweet smell of tiare. And finally, before dinner, have sunset cocktails overlooking Mount Otemanu, the extinct volcano which is paradise’s distinctively craggy profile.
No matter what experience you are looking for, you and your family will remember this vacation for many years to come!
