Best things to do and see in Papeete

What can you see and do in Pape’ete?

French Polynesia is a paradise, brimming with aquatic activities, stunning vistas nestled into fern-covered peaks and valleys, and seafood dishes. To make sure you pack in the must-do experiences, you’ll want to plan your itinerary soon after you’ve secured your Pape’ete flight deal. During your trip, explore Moorea's lagoon, and there are excursions available to take you snorkeling or for a swim in the pristine waters. Afterward, you’ll be brought to an islet where you’ll learn to cook (and, of course, eat) some of the local cuisines, such as poisson cru. For a shorter activity that still puts you on the water, opt to rent a see-through kayak and paddle out into the waters. From Pape’ete, take a boat out to Moorea and go for a hike along the Three Coconuts Pass trail. The hike is moderate difficulty, so accessible for many travelers. When enjoying the wander, stop at refreshing waterfalls and, when at the crest, be awed by verdant peaks and blue-water backdrop.
