Located in the South Pacific, the Islands of Tahiti are just eight hours by air from Los Angeles. Surrounded by pristine, crystal clear blue waters, the 118 islands and atolls offer natural beauty, authentic island culture, and unique French Polynesian style. The Islands of Tahiti are world-renowned for their white-sand beaches, stunning turquoise lagoons and varied landscapes ranging from coral atolls to volcanic mountain peaks. Each island offers a variety of accommodation experiences from luxurious resorts with overwater villas, to family pensions to sailing via private charter or scheduled cruise. Privacy comes naturally in the Islands of Tahiti and offers visitors the space to relax and reconnect. Tahiti is halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America and in the same time zone as Hawaii.
