Let's face it: The Tahitian islands are all about relaxation. The Polynesian lifestyle assures that...
With the exception of just a few sports activities, people on the Island of Tahiti just aren't in a hurry, no matter what they're
(Ok, the City of Papeete does seem to be the exception here, but that's what makes Tahiti so interesting!)
This page is here to help you with the RELAXING activities on the island of Tahiti- outside the hustling, bustling urban center of Papeete.
In addition to simply reading a book, laying out on a blanket on a beach, or taking a stroll, we offer a few
more ideas here...
TST makes choosing your favorite island activity easy! If you want MORE choices, simply check out our other "To Do" pages: WATERSPORTS, ISLAND FUN, ADVENTURES, RECREATION & GAMES, or SHOPPING, SERVICES,
