tahiti honeymoon destination

Planning a honeymoon is an exciting experience. Especially when you’re going for more than romance, but a little soul, mind and body fulfillment.  The culture and exquisite foods in The Islands of Tahiti are just a few of the reasons it should be at the top of your honeymoon destination list.

If you enjoy immersing yourself in the places you visit, The Islands of Tahiti has a rich French Polynesian culture with several native and international dishes that will leave you dreaming of more.

Culture in Tahiti’s Strand of Pearls

The Tuamotu Atolls, also known as Tahiti’s Strand of Pearls makes up over 7500 square miles.  From the lesser known island paradises of Manihi, Fakarava, and Tikehau, there is a unique history that makes every mini destination a worthwhile vacation location.

Manihi is home to the first pearl faming atoll.  There are several lagoon activities here, including black pearl farms that come from the famous black-lipped oysters.  Fakarava, a Dream Island, has a rich ecosystem culture of rare flora and sea life.  It also has an ancient coral village, built in 1862.  Tikehau is the Pink Sand Island and a favorite spot for scuba divers.  If you enjoy bird watching, this is the best island to lay your eyes on several bird colonies. Each of The Islands of Tahiti has something unique to offer. 

Tahitian Cuisine

Tahiti has some of the freshest fish and most exotic fruits, prepared in varied influences – French, Polynesian, Chinese, Italian and more.  The national dish, poisson cru (e’ia ota) can be found in most Tahitian restaurants.  It consists of raw fish, coupled with vegetables, marinated with lime juice and coconut milk.  Shrimp is another well-known island fave, prepared in numerous different ways. Enjoy a French croissant with a local coffee for dessert or an afternoon pick-me-up.  If you’d like to try an exquisite sauce, the delicate vanilla and coconut combo is a well-known Tahitian treat.

Not sure which restaurant to go to because you want the chance to sample as many items as possible?  Head to Les Roulottes for a variety of Food Trucks with all the Island’s native dishes.  In the evening, partake in a tamaaraa, a Tahitian Feast that includes dancing and Polynesian cuisine. From signature dishes and desserts to food trucks and Tahitian feasts; there is something for everyone.

Follow your adventurous side to The Islands of Tahiti for an unforgettable culture and cuisine experience.
