Honeymoon - Tahiti

Most people that hear the word Tahiti conjure up images of a fantasy island. In truth, Tahiti is just that, a beautiful destination, which is something you need to experience to believe. If you were looking for a tropical paradise for your honeymoon, you should definitely consider a trip to Tahiti, knowing you will not be disappointed.

Tahiti is officially called French Polynesia, which is comprised of 118 islands with Tahiti being the largest. Located more than 3,000 miles from both Australia and California, Tahiti features mountainous islands that have low coral atolls as well as jungle areas. In other words, one of the benefits of visiting Tahiti is that no matter what you enjoy, there is something here for everyone.

The French took these islands over during the mid-1800s at which time the combination of Polynesian and European cultures met. The capital city is called Papeete, offering insight into the rich history and culture. Museums in Tahiti are magnificent and make great day trips. Some of the favorites include the Gauguin Museum, Her Islands, and Museum of Tahiti.

Other fascinating places to visit include the islands of Moorea and Bora Bora where many ancient temples still stand. Then, you could take a day to visit the Island of Huahine, which is famous for many archaeological sites. Then, if you want to visit and island where kings ruled at one time and held various types of religious ceremonies, you want to see Raiatea.

Other exciting things to do while in Tahiti would include shark diving, which is not for the faint of heart. In this case, you would dive with live sharks that are lured in with special bait. Although it sounds scary and dangerous, this experience is not. However, shark diving is something that will create a lifetime memory.

You can also take a tour of the Faaroa River, which is the only navigable river in all of the French Polynesia. To enjoy the island further and do some sightseeing on your own, you can rent bicycles. Since the island has a 20-mile road that runs around it, you can easily take a day to experience the sites or if you prefer, you can hike through the jungle on guided treks.

The food most famous in Tahiti is called Poisson Cru. Made from coconut milk and raw fish, locals love it. Another option is to create casse croute, which is French bread sandwiches made from raw fish that has been soaked in seawater. You will also enjoy juicy, fresh fruit such as papaya, mango, pample mousse (similar to grapefruit), breadfruit, pineapple, and other delectable fruits from the island.
