A world of colour, splashed across a paradise island

From the colourful market and shops of Papeete to the distant blue of cloud-scraping volcanic mountains. From the deep green of richly forested valleys to the twinkling waters of fast-running rivers. From blue skies to black sand.

Captain Cook was struck by the beauty of Tahiti and the warmth of its people. Paul Gaugin was inspired by the paradise-island lifestyle, the tropical light and vivid hues and distinctive tones of this stunning island. Make it part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Fiji and you will be amazed by its life, energy and colour – and your skills as a photographer will be stretched to the limit. Papeete is the major town, featuring a whole wealth of galleries and museums, art and craft markets and shops, cultural events and festivals. On Tahiti you can combine lazing on black volcanic sand with browsing around the Paul Gaugin gallery, the Musée de Tahiti et des Iles or the world’s only museum dedicated to pearls. Or you can explore the interior aboard a 4x4 and discover cloud-cloaked mountains, plunging valleys full of ferns, surging rivers coursing through deep ravines and stunning views across the island.
