Explore Papeete's surroundings by going to Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue), Taravao (Bain de Vaima & The Water Gardens of Vaipahi) and Taharuu Beach (in Papara). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, take in the dramatic natural features at Point Venus, steep yourself in history at James Norman Hall Home, and stop by Papeete Roulottes.
