The Location

Known for it's black beaches, turquoise lagoons and laidback culture, Tahiti is the largest of 118 islands and atolls that comprise French Polynesia in the South Pacific Ocean.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Tiare flower is Tahiti's national symbol. Both men and women wear it as a necklace, crown or behind the ear. If it's behind the left ear, it means you’re taken; the right indicates you're unattached.

WHEN TO GO

July or August - the weather is slightly cooler and the world-famous festival 'The Heiva' in July is a must-see lively display of Polynesian culture.

ARTS & TRADITIONS

Tahiti has long been an inspiration for the arts, from Paul Gauguin's Post-impressionist paintings to Rupert Brooke's poetry, including the love poem that inspired our collection.

Tahiti's own unique and ancient art forms include tattooing, weaving and woodcarving. Each sacred tradition reveals a vivid tale about love, the island and the people’s enduring connection with nature.
