Tahiti: Sailing

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

Tahiti is one of the best areas to sail in the South Pacific as the small volcanic islands are stunning areas of natural beauty. The main port is based in Papeete, and from there you can hire a yacht for a day or moor your own boat. However, when you and your boat enter the port, you will have to pay a pricey deposit and handling fee. A sailing trip is highly recommended, due to the expanse of luscious, luminous sea that surrounds Tahiti.
