Facts:

  • Tahiti’s 118 islands and atolls are located south of the equator, in the same time zone as Hawaii, halfway between California and Australia. The capital city is Papeete, with Faa’a Airport under 8 hours by air from Los Angeles (LAX) and about 12 hours by air from New York (JFK). Air Tahiti Nui, Tahiti’s national carrier, offers 12 nonstop direct flights weekly from LAX and seasonal nonstop direct flights from JFK. Other carriers to Tahiti include Air France and Air New Zealand. Hawaiian Airlines also offers one nonstop flight weekly from Honolulu.
  • All visitors to Tahiti must have a return airline ticket and a passport that is valid for six months beyond their date of return.
  • French and Tahitian are the official languages. As English is spoken in hotels and shops throughout the islands, communication for North American travelers is rarely a problem.
  • The local currency is the French Pacific Franc (XPF or CFP). International banks and ATM machines can be found at Faa’a Int’l Airport as well as throughout the main islands. On the primary tourist islands, VISA and MasterCard are commonly accepted in most hotels, restaurants and boutiques while American Express is accepted in some.
  • The climate and lifestyle of the islands calls for casual and comfortable clothing. Pack loose-fitting, natural fabrics and plenty of shorts. Pareus and swimsuits can be worn during the daytime at resorts, while casual shirts, shorts and walking shoes provide the most comfort during island exploration. For dinner, casual slacks and sport shirts are the best choice for men; cool sundresses for women.
