You'll find plenty of places to visit near Papeete: Taharuu Beach (in Papara), The Water Gardens of Vaipahi (in Taravao) and Faarumai Waterfalls (in Arue). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Museum of Tahiti and the Islands, steep yourself in history at James Norman Hall Home, see the interesting displays at Musee de la perle et Bijouterie, and admire the masterpieces at Paul Gauguin Museum.
