  • What to do in Papeete
    excursion that circles Tahiti nui You ll stop at Point Venus Tahiti s northernmost point It s also where Captain Cook observed the transit of Venus in 1769 as commissioned by the Royal Society of London At the Arahoho blowhole watch the surf crash through the holes in a geyser like eruption Restroom facilities are available near the parking lot In the village of Matalea walk the garden paths at Valpehi Gardens to a refreshing waterfall It s also an opportunity to cool off in the lush gardens but beware of mosquitos Maraa Grotto sits at the base of a steep headlands It s actually two caves Visitors walk through a gazebo to view the larger cave Arahurahu Marae proved to be the most interesting site on our tour After walking up a grassy hillside the tour begins at several stone sculptures Our guide who was funny as well as informative explained the religious rites performed at Arahurahu including human sacrifice Take the escalator upstairs to take an overhead photo of Marche du Papeete Although we enjoyed the sites and the drive around the island gave us a chance to see how the Tahitian people live our advice to others is to skip the ship s tour ignore the tour desk s warnings of expensive fares and take a taxi for a circle drive of the islands Cruise Critic recommends agreeing on a price before getting in the taxi Renting a car is also an alternative And art lovers should add the Gaugin Museum to their self directed itinerary Notre Dame Cathedral If you re cruise excursioned out walk over to the Marche du Papeete the main market building to browse the beautiful flowers vegetables and crafts Yes you ll find fish there too Then walk to Notre Dame Cathedral

  • Moorea lagoon: photo of a tropical paradise
    on two occasions Each time we were mesmerized by the deep blue colors abundant sea life and soothing tropical water that is the Moorea lagoon This photo is from our first trip when we were on a cruise excursion to swim with the stingrays It was our first experience sailing in the South Pacific and we absolutely positively fell in love with long cruises that include lots of sea days interspersed with visits to small tropical islands Exploring the lagoon is not the only activity on offer in Moorea Enjoy a drive to the Belvedere Lookout join a four wheel drive exploration of the island sign up for parasailing go dolphin watching or even shop for pearls So far on both of our visits Alan and I have opted for a water excursion that involves snorkeling and stingrays While we know that we should broaden our experiences in Moorea the call of that blue blue water is too strong Or maybe we just enjoy recreating our first experience in a beautiful paradise Have you visited the Moorea lagoon by cruise ship or on a land trip Join the conversation at the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook or send us an email with your comments or questions Planning a South Pacific cruise Check out our South Pacific cruise excursion reviews You may also like to read Discover Waterton Lakes with the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies Sunrise on Maui s Haleakala National Park Seven Off the Beaten Path National Parks to Avoid the Crowds Montreal City Guide On Our Own in Cartagena Spain About Donna Hull A boomer travel and lifestyle authority who is exploring the world one activity at a time Besides writing and publishing My Itchy Travel Feet she is also the author of New Mexico

  • Iles de Pins is a tropical paradise
    Pins New Caledonia Close your eyes When I say think of a tropical paradise is this the scene that comes to mind Alan and I discovered the idyllic beach setting on a cruise excursion when we sailed the South Pacific on Seabourn Odyssey This tropical scene wasn t visible when the ship anchored outside the reef at Iles de Pins in New Caledonia It took a tender ride and short walk across the island before we discovered the lagoon with trees that shaded the sandy beach After spreading out towels provided by the ship we spent a few brief hours alternating between sitting on the sand and wading in the warm water A gentle breeze rustling through low slung tree branches no commercialism and sea green water that turned turquoise then indigo blue Iles de Pins was as close as I ve ever come to my vision of a tropical paradise NBC recently featured Dr Beach s 2012 list of the world s best beaches Iles de Pins wasn t on it but plenty of my other favorites were including Beachwalker Park one of the beaches at Kiawah Island Do you have a favorite beach that says paradise to you Join the conversation at the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook or send us an email with your comments or questions You may also like to read Discover Waterton Lakes with the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies Sunrise on Maui s Haleakala National Park Seven Off the Beaten Path National Parks to Avoid the Crowds Montreal City Guide On Our Own in Cartagena Spain About Donna Hull A boomer travel and lifestyle authority who is exploring the world one activity at a time Besides writing and publishing My Itchy Travel Feet she is also the author of New
