The Best Tahiti Beaches

In Tahiti, wherever you go, you will not be very far from a sea beach. Also, almost all beaches are suitable for diving, snorkeling and fishing. There are both pubic and private beaches in Tahiti. If you are staying in a hotel or resort with an access to a private beach, you are lucky. If not, you will still have abundant choices of public beaches, which are as lovely.

If you would like to visit all beaches by yourself, get a map, rent a car or a scooter and start right on. The helpful locals will willingly direct you to the next beach at every stop. Here is a list of five best beaches in Tahiti. We have many More Tahiti Vacation Information, Travel Review and Tourist Attractions Articles Now Available.

Lafayette Beach
Located on the less crowded Eastern coast of Tahiti and facing the Matavi Bay, Lafayette is one of the best black sand beaches in Tahiti. The Tahiti Radisson Plaza resort is located right on this beach.

Papenoo Beach
This beach located in the North coast is another black sand beach. Also, if you are a surfer, you will probably prefer this beach to others because of the slightly more turbulent water.

Plage de Toaroto
This half-mile long white sand beach, located on the western coast is quite near the hotel Meridien. You can do snorkeling here as the water is shallow and the marine life is extremely rich. The dining experience in the restaurant Le Carre, on a wooden deck right on the beach, is quite breathtaking.

Venus Point Beach
At Venus Point on the east coast, you should visit the picturesque black sand beach which has an added attraction in the form of a tall, white lighthouse and a park. Interestingly, Venus Point is the place from where Captain Cook observed the transit of the planet Venus in 1769.

Pirae Beach
