Polynesian cuisine is a unique cuisine. It is a diet that has been influenced by the culture of the Pacific Islands.
The food is largely based on seafood, but also includes other meats such as pork, poultry and beef. The most notable feature of Polynesian cuisine is its use of coconut milk in many dishes. The cuisine also uses taro root, yam, breadfruit, banana, and pandanus leaves to make various dishes.

Preparing your trip to Tahiti…We live in a tropical area, so we suggest wearing light cotton clothes: shorts, cotton slacks or jeans, summer dresses, swimsuit… A jumper or a light wrap is a good idea since temperatures can drop on top of the mountains or at night during the dry season (July-August). You may also want to bring a windbreaker or a raincoat since showers may happen.
Lockdown can be relaxing; lockdown can be boring or even hectic for those working from home while home schooling their kids… but at e-TAHITI travel we decided that lockdown should have some Tahitian vibes.

A trip to French Polynesia would be incomplete without venturing beyond Tahiti and Moorea. Magnificent, secret islands, nestled in the heart of the most beautiful lagoons on the planet, await your visit.

By plane to save time and fly over the atolls or by boat to discover the water, it’s up to you how you will reach these corners of paradise.
Your trip to French Polynesia will be full of surprises. 50 kilometers from Tahiti, the atoll of Tetiaora will bewitch you. It is here that the royal families came to rest. In 1789, three deserters from the Bounty came here to seek refuge. Marlon Brando discovered the island during a walk with a fisherman during the filming of the movie “Shipwrecked of the Bounty”, in 1969. In front of the beauty of the landscapes and the splendor of the 13 islets, called motus, the actor remains speechless. The atoll fascinated him so much that he decided to buy it.
Traveling in French Polynesia is a dream come true. Breathtaking landscapes and a friendly welcome from the inhabitants will mark out your stay. Each of the islands of the archipelagos conceals unique treasures. There is no lack of activities. Contemplative and sporty people will find something to do on land, underwater or in the air. Diving, hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle are alternatives to discover the landscapes of Polynesia from another angle.
