2020 Travvy Awards: The Islands of Tahiti Named Best Destination

Even in this day and age of 24/7 information and virtual reality and the ability to immerse yourself in a destination before ever getting there, the Islands of Tahiti remain one of the few places in the world that maintains an aura around it.

There is still something of a mystery about this exotic culture, a place that whispers romance at every turn, a site where all the colors you can imagine form a canvas of inspiration.

Perhaps it is no surprise then that The Islands of Tahiti have been named the 2020 Travvy Award winner for Best Overall Destination.

The allure of Tahiti has never wavered. From the moment you arrive at the airport, with live music wafting through the terminal and Tahitian natives greeting you with flowers, it’s simply magic.

Tahiti is actually a collection of 118 islands in the South Pacific of what is known as French Polynesia. Many of the islands and atolls are still uninhabited, but there are eight where most tourists head—the main island of Tahiti, Huahine, Bora Bora, Tikehau, Taha’a, Raiatea, Moorea and Rangiroa. And while each one has the legendary turquoise waters and white sand beaches, each also has its own character and personality.

While romance is the predominant theme here, Tahiti is so much more. You can hike, you can see the most amazing flora and fauna, swim of course, and dive.

Oh boy, can you dive.

Many divers will tell you that there is no greater place in the world to dive among coral reefs, caves, lagoons, and the most amazing, colorful schools of fish you will ever see.

Including sharks.

Yes, Tahiti literally has everything you want. Or nothing you want. You can be as active as you please, or you can just take it slow and enjoy the romance.

The Islands of Tahiti are not to be missed.
