Papeete

3.7
The capital of French Polynesia, Pape'ete amounts to little more than a medium-sized town by Western standards, but it is still a thriving hub of culture and commerce. Colorful architecture, a little faded and peeling in the humid air and tropical sun, lends the town a ramshackle charm. The waterfront makes for a pleasant stroll in the daytime and comes alive with spirited nightlife in the evening. The real heart of the town, however, is the bustling market, selling black pearls, traditional Polynesian handicrafts, colorful sarongs, souvenirs, and everything in between. With its busy port, Pape'ete makes a great base from which to set off exploring the nearby islands, reefs, beaches, and lagoons. Make the most of your holiday in Papeete by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our French Polynesia itinerary website.
