Much more than a group of islands, Tahiti
is a wonderful state of mind, seducing honeymooners, romantics,
adventurers, and vacationers looking for a tranquil escape.
Here, around these South Seas isles, a romantic sunset sea
sends giant curls of turquoise breaking onto the colorful
reefs that protect the tranquil lagoons of warm, bright-emerald
waters and white coral-sand beaches.
Easier to travel to than you might imagine, Tahiti's
Faa'a Airport is under 8 hours by air from Los Angeles LAX
airport, with nonstop flights leaving nearly every day. As
far south of the equator as Hawaii is north, 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 - (only two hours behind California
April-October and three hours behind California November-March).
