Peak season

The largest island in French Polynesia, Tahiti is a tropical paradise and a sought after holiday destination. Cheap flights to Tahiti are more likely to be snapped up in the high season which runs from May to October (though some resorts start high season prices as early as 1 April). Tahiti is a popular spot for weddings and honeymooners often arrive on package deals to stay at one of the fabulous resorts or travel to the outer islands. The capital Papeete offers resorts and spas, fine dining restaurants, markets, pearl shops and designer boutiques. While its lush green forests, high, jagged mountains, white beaches and coral reefs offer a myriad of hiking and watersport activities. Of course you can just laze on the beach, soak up the sun and set your body clock to Tahitian time. Don’t expect to get a bargain if you travel in July and August, these are the most expensive months for flights to Tahiti. Many tourists arrive from the US and Europe, the Heiva Nui festival takes place in July, and in August Tahitians take their annual holiday, in keeping with France. Christmas and New Year are also a busy tourist times as lots of Tahitians return home from overseas.

Off Season
