Tahiti, the Island of Love

Tahiti is the most well-known name of French Polynesia. It is the home of the chaotic and buzzing Papeete, capital of the island nation. The landscape of Tahiti is a fabulous mix of jagged mountains, valleys, waterfalls and streams running towards black sand beaches and pristine lagoons. It is one of the most underrated area of French Polynesia, which will amaze you if you take the time to visit it. Curiously, the main island is French Polynesia's best kept secret.

Climate Tahiti

Tropical: warm all year

The climate of French Polynesia is fairly stable throughout the year.  It is considered tropical, but because of the vast amount of surrounding water, the temperature is moderate. It has an average temperature of about 27° C.  The temperature of the water can vary around that same mark and only by a few degrees depending on the season.

Two distinct seasons:

A winter season from end of October to the beginning of March, whereas cloudy skies and heavy showers are common. They are generally short and plenty of sunshine is still the norm. Tropical storms are rare but can occur from December to February.
A summer season which is dry and where temperature are around the mid 30s° C. It is then the best time to travel to French Polynesia.
