Tahiti
The unique and ubiquitous island of Tahiti is world-renowned for its Polynesian charm, colorful culture and romantic ambiance. The grass-skirted hip shaking of Tahitian dance is sure to get your toes tapping and heart thumping—let the celebratory vibe of this magical locale rejuvenate and excite you to the core. Warm-water lagoons and crystalline ocean tides are host to a rainbow’s worth of colorful marine life, and the food, drink, spas and dramatic nightlife provide an experience to stimulate all the senses.
