The Islands of Tahiti lure some travelers with their green and lush interiors rising to dramatic peaks above the turquoise waters of the Pacific. Others are drawn by the coral reefs and legendary diving and snorkeling sites. For culinary travelers, it may be the scent of vanilla—the world’s best is grown here—and the chance to sample dishes like poisson cru (the national dish, of raw fish marinated briefly in lime and coconut milk ) that lead them to the islands.
To showcase just how much the destination has to offer, we are presenting The Islands of Tahiti Instagram Adventure featuring more than 60 photos that bring the islands to life. They are organized around themes—such as embrace/release, inhale/exhale, and lost/found. Follow whichever ones pique your interest, and see where they lead you.
As you tap each Instagram tile, you’ll uncover recommended experiences and attractions, along with local history. You’ll find suggestions of places to surf, snorkel, or go horseback riding. Other tiles will steer you to places to shop for traditional handicrafts and the islands’ famous Tahitian cultured pearls, as well as plantations where you can stock up on one of the country’s most famous exports, its fragrant Tahitian vanilla beans, after learning about the art and science of cultivating them. Travelers interested in the islands’ long history and fascinating culture will learn about Marae Taputapuatea, a UNESCO World Heritage site. At the end of your days exploring, you may want to opt for a massage by the sea, a gourmet dinner, and then a sound night’s sleep in an overwater bungalow—this Instagram Adventure has recommendations for those experiences as well.
