Tahiti: Disabled Needs

Waterfall-laden, shadowy mountains, river valleys and black sand beaches

In Tahiti, wheelchair access is generally unsatisfactory if one wants to travel around the island and the rest of South Polynesia independently. Public buses will be problematic for wheelchairs users, as there are no facilities for the disabled. Despite the poor disabled facilities in public areas, many of the beach resorts have ramps and spacious rooms, so you will feel at ease during your holiday to Tahiti. However, each hotel has different amenities, so it is advisable to ring the hotel direct in advance to find out whether they have the appropriate facilities for your disability. After unpacking in your accessible room, sit out on your balcony and soak in Tahiti’s scenic landscape on your vacation to this south Polynesian isle.
