Travel To The Tropical Island Paradise Of Tahiti!

One of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself is the gift of travel. Our planet is a big, fascinating globe full of amazing wildlife, stunning natural beauty, and fascinating peoples and cultures. Traveling broadens us and makes us more attuned to the world we live in and our fellow beings, united by our differences more than we are separated by them. There are so many incredible places to go; how does one choose where to begin?

One great way to get started is to explore your own global neighborhood, nearby countries that are easy to get to, but still full of plenty of exotic aspects to excite and educate you! First-time travelers might feel more comfortable joining a solo female travel group in Australia that will provide you with companions and a knowledgeable guide to ensure you can relax and enjoy your journey!

Australia is ideally situated for exploring the vast reaches of the Pacific Ocean, so let’s consider taking a trip to one of the most beautiful jewels of Polynesia, Tahiti! 

Tahiti is a lush, tropical island nation that basks in continuous sunshine. The air temperature averages between 24° and 30° Celsius, while the water temperature stays around a pleasantly warm 22° to 26° Celsius, making it a swimming and diving paradise! The towering volcanic islands have a high humidity thanks to the dense vegetation, while the low coral atolls are a bit cooler since they are more exposed to trade winds.

Tahiti has only two main seasons. Summer’s climate is a bit warmer, with higher humidity, and lasts from November to March. It tends to rain more frequently, but never enough to call it a rainy season. Winter is drier and cooler with lower humidity, lasting from April to October. In winter the underwater visibility is at its best, perfect for scuba diving. Winter is also the best season for sailing and hiking. The coolest months of the year are July and August because of the southeast trade winds called maraamu.

The official language of Tahiti is French, but the locals usually speak Tahitian, a Polynesian language. Most people also speak some English, especially in hotels, shops, and restaurants. The locals are very friendly, and if you learn to speak a little Tahitian you can expect a very warm welcome! Here are some easy phrases to try out!

Hello – ia orana (yo-rah-nah)

Goodbye – nana (nah-nah)

Welcome – maeva (mah-ay-vah)

Cheers – manuia (mah-new-yah)

Thank you – mauruuru (mah-roo-roo)

Being a tropical environment, the sun can get quite intense during the daytime, so it’s best to wear light, loose-fitting clothing, a sun hat, and sunglasses. It’s also good practice to liberally apply high-SPF sunscreen and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. 

Tahiti is blessed in that there are no poisonous snakes or spiders, but you do need to watch out for the mossies, they are always thirsty for your blood! The tiny sand fly called the no-no can be highly annoying so apply bug repellent! The lagoon is pretty safe, but if you walk or swim near the coral, wear reef shoes to protect yourself. Tahiti is a wonderful place to visit, it is the quintessential tropical paradise! Maeva!
