21 Tahiti Photos

to Fuel Your Exotic Island Fantasies

 

Wanderlust has officially kicked in!

 

It happens to us every year around this time, when spring has sprung, but it’s still too cool out (lows in the upper 40s, highs in the mid-70s) to go swimming. We start fantasizing about escaping to some gorgeous Exotic Island, with warm beaches and cold tropical drinks. Though we’ve traveled to the mountains outside Asheville and the cultural melting pot of New Orleans in the last two months, there’s a certain itch that only a tropical getaway can scratch.

 

In April of 2013, we were just coming back from an AMAZING 10-day trip to Tahiti. We spent half our time exploring the island of Moorea, and the other half savoring the life of luxury in Bora Bora. Now, a year later, it feels like some distant dream of a Polynesian paradise that you never want to wake up from.

 

Fortunately, we have the photos below to prove it really happened. Hope they’ll inspire you to make your own travel dreams come true.  –Bret Love; photos by Bret Love

We visited Tahiti as guests of the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora and Tahiti Tourism. But our opinions are our own, and are never swayed by the generosity of our hosts.

  1. Those photos are gorgeous. I have never been to Tahiti but it looks as beautiful as everything I have ever heard. Did the shark that was coming right at you, in the photo above, continue its path or swerve at the last second? Or did it eat you?

  3. This was very inspiring. I haven’t been to this region, and have honestly only thought about it as one of those “maybe we’ll get there one of these days” type of destinations. But our 15-year wedding anniversary is this summer and I’ve been trying to think of some place unique. You only have a 15th wedding anniversary once, right?
