With so much on offer in Tahiti, it is hard to know where to start when visiting. The preferred sets of islands (archipelagos) to cruise on a first trip are the Society Islands and the Tuamotu atolls.
Should you have only one week, it is best to focus on just one set of islands. Those with more time will enjoy visiting two different archipelagos and exploring the incredible diversity from one place to another.
The Society Islands, with their amazing lush green mountainous peaks, are the perfect place to enjoy pristine lagoons as well as land activities such as horse-riding, quad-biking, inner island safari, golf, shopping, etc.
If you are keen on phenomenal diving, the Tuamotu atolls, remnants of volcanoes at an earlier stage than the Society Islands, await you for some of the most incredible dives in the world with the most exciting encounters and fabulous desert-white or pink sand beaches. Cruising on a yacht will allow you to dive unspoiled areas or visit islets with not a soul in sight.
