3 1/2 days in Tahiti (mid-november) - not sure what to do?

Hello,

A friend and I will be spending mid-November in New Zealand. The tickets we purchased include a 3 and a half day stopover in Tahiti before returning to the US.

We've never been to French Polynesia and are at a lost at what to do and how best to spend our time. I have been reading the posts and researching online and it seems as though day trips to the other islands will not do them justice and rather expensive. Would it be best to rent a car and explore Tahiti for the day and relax the remainder or travel to another island?

Two ladies newly 30, fans of the outdoor and trying new things and budget-conscious.

Appreciate any advice. Many thanks,

M

What about ferrying to Moorea for a day or staying over night if accomadation isn't all ready pre booked in Tahiti. Tahiti it self has some lovely things to see.

A thought :)

Buy a great travel book for Tahiti Tahiti and French Polynesia Guide by Jan Prince 6th ed. It will give all of the information you will need. Amazon has it in both print and kindle form.
