Honeymoon in Tahiti Honeyfund

The Islands of Tahiti are known for their breathtaking emerald lagoons and island vibes.

But what really makes The Islands of Tahiti #TravelGoals is the immersion into the French Polynesian culture and cuisine.

Be Pure, Be Wise & the Mana will Live in You

Once you step into The Islands of Tahiti you are welcomed and pulled into the swing of the Polynesian lifestyle. The current generation of Tahitians has inherited a rich and expressive culture from their ma’ohi ancestors. The most important aspect of life to the Tahitians is their Mana. Mana is explained as purity and wisdom and they live by the saying, “Be pure, be wise and the Mana will live in you”.

Dance is Art in Motion

Tahitians give voice to their Mana through dance and rhythms. Their dance and music celebrates the resilience of the Polynesian culture to overcome and maintain their sacred expressions of life. They use percussion and string instruments to create their music. They can also be seen clacking together stones, shells, penu or coconuts.

Their songs are a cross between religious hymns and chants. Depending on which island(s) you’re exploring, you may hear the same hymn, but each island and district has its own interpretation of these hymns. Hymns are also accompanied by dancing. The most famous of their dances is the otea, which is choreographed around a theme. They also have the aparima, where the hands of the dancers mime history, the hivinau, and the pa’o’a. You will find yourself mesmerized by the energy of these traditions.

Tastebuds on Fire

The benefit of having fantastic weather all year round is the abundance of fruits, spices and vegetables grown by local farmers. The cuisine is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. It’s flavorful, vibrant and nutritious.

Most fish dishes (perch, mahi mahi, and parrot fish) are served raw and almost everything incorporates coconut in some way, which makes it turn out deliciously creamy. Their desserts also feature coconut, along with fresh vanilla from the local plantations. You will be exposed to most, if not all, of their traditional recipes at the various restaurants and food trucks on the islands.

 

The Islands of Tahiti is not just a breathtaking, picture-perfect country. It’s rich with culture and delicious traditional cuisine. Immerse yourself into Polynesian traditions when you visit The Islands of Tahiti.
