Tahiti Travel Guide
The entire group are a mixture of high volcanic islands and coral atolls, with the high islands being much more fertile and supporting a wider variety of vegetation. The iconic Tahitian tiare flower is abundant on the high islands and the commonest introduced species are hibiscus and bougainvillea. Most land-based animals, including wild pigs, goats, fowl and sheep, have been introduced but, as you would imagine, marine life is literally teeming. There are two distinct seasons ‘wet’ – November to April with temperatures rising to between 27 and 30C and ‘dry’ from May to October when the temperatures are a little lower and it is far less humid.
