Papaeari Tours

Tahiti is not overflowing with historic monuments, which makes Papaeari stand out even more. It is the island’s oldest village, settled somewhere between 400 and 500 AD. It is also known by art lovers for its association with Paul Gauguin, who lived in the area. The nearby museum dedicated to his life is one of the area’s major draws.

But this is also a great place to relax and enjoy island life – watch fishers bringing in the daily catch which may well end up on your plate. Hike in the hinterlands, stroll black sand beaches or travel west along the south coast to reach Atimaono, where you'll find Tahiti’s only golf course.

Practical Info

Papaeari - or Papeari - is on Tahiti’s south coast, on the opposite side to Papeete (if Papeete is at 11 o’clock, Papaeari is at 5 o’clock). It is close to the isthmus which connects Tahiti Nui (the main island) with Tahiti Iti.
