Day By Day

Day 1 – USA to Papeete
Today you will begin your Swain Destinations customized itinerary. Please note, international air has not been included in this package price. 

On arrival you are met and greeted with a traditional flower lei and transferred to your overnight accommodation in Papeete.

Papeete, the capital and commercial hub of French Polynesia, hosts the government offices, hospitals, banks, airline and travel agencies, boutiques and black pearl shops. The Central Market is a must, located a block behind the waterfront. You will see traditional Tahitian crafts, flowers, fruits, fish and other produce.  The waterfront is attractive, with a tree lined promenade along a marina with an international yachting community.

A busy small city, Papeete hums with happy sounds in a tropical atmosphere with French flavor and an easygoing Tahitian disposition.

Starting Accommodation: Manava Suite Resort

Day 2 – Papeete to Taha'a
Transfer to the domestic terminal for the flight to Raiatea where you will transfer by boat to Taha’a and to your accommodation.

Starting Accommodation: Le Taha'a Private Island & Spa

Day 3 – At leisure, Taha’a
Sharing a common lagoon with Raiatea and accessible only by boat, Taha'a produces about 80% of all vanilla in French Polynesia. Taha’a is the only island in the Society Islands that can be completely circled by boat inside the protected lagoon.

With its many deep bays and small deserted motus on the reef, Taha’a is an ideal island to escape the 20th century. Here you can explore the reef and discover the beauty of its multicolored lagoon, enjoy a picnic on a deserted motu or go hiking in the mountains and through the vanilla plantations and learn the mystery of these "orchids".

With only a handful of guest houses and two small hotels, Taha’a is slowly awakening to tourism and yet it still maintains an authentic flavor of Polynesia.
