Tahiti is the largest island in a cluster of French Polynesian islands in the south Pacific that are just about the most beautiful places on Earth. Surely you remember when Kim Kardashian lost her $75,000 diamond earring while on a family trip to Bora Bora. Well, the connection here is that Bora Bora is one of the most popular French Polynesian islands, and if you can find Kim’s earring in the waters, you can finanace your trip there.

In all seriousness though, Tahiti (and all the islands) is primarily known as a honeymooners paradise, but that is not to say it isn’t the perfect place to take a trip if you aren’t honeymooning. The clear waters and spectacular views may make it hard to leave these islands. Here are a few suggestions for how to spend 7 nights in Tahiti. Warning: island hopping is involved.

Sunday: The Matira Beach Restaurant

Matira Beach, 98730, Bora Bora

Start your Tahiti trip at none other than a beach bar. The Matira Beach Restaurant is a restaurant on stilts that has a romantic atmosphere for you and whoever else cares to join you. Their house specialties include seafood and red meat from New Zealand, so there is a little something for everybody.

Monday: Rudy’s Restaurant

PK 6,9 Coastal Road, Maharepa 98718 Moorea

Rudy’s is labeled a steak house, but it actually serves French cuisine with island influences. It is the perfect mix of Europe and island life while vacationing. Even better than the entrees are the desserts which should be as enjoyable as the Tahitian lifestyle.

Tuesday: Les Roulottes

Pape’ete, Tahiti

This should be one of the most cultural experiences you have while in Tahiti. In Pape’ete, there is a strip of food trucks that are as phenomenal as the expensive food on the island. Travelers swear by this meal because of its deliciousness and price. A good way to save on the very expensive French Polynesian islands…

Wednesday: Le Lotus Restaurant

Faaa, French Polynesia

Back to splurging. Le Lotus is a restaurant connected to the very famous InterContinental hotel chain in Tahiti. Le Lotus is known for its fine food, stunning views and Tahitian dance shows. This is certainly a dining experience to remember. Also the address to this place is no joke. Apparently if you ask a cabbie to take you there, they will understand.

Thursday: New Te Marara

Fare Quay, Fare, Huahine

We have no idea what happened to the old Te Marara, but New Te Marara is a seafood restaurant in Huahine that overlooks a lagoon. We don’t think it can get much better than that, other than the restaurant offering incredible happy hour deals. Cocktails and lagoons, what more could you need?

Friday: 3 Brasseurs

Front de Mer, BP 4489, Pape’ete 98713

Did you know that beer is actually Tahiti’s national drink. At 3 Brasseurs, the beer is taken very seriously and is only brewed on location. A typical beer hall, this place is great for unwinding after a long day of scuba diving.

Saturday: Le Morrison’s Cafe

Vaima Center, Seafront

Le Morrison’s is a fantastic place to start the night with a bite to eat, and continue the night with some dancing. As the sun sets, the venue begins to host DJs that are too good not to stay for. Wrap up your Tahiti trip with a wild night out at Le Morrison’s. P.S. the picture below is of the employees of Le Morrison’s doing the Harlem Shake… why wouldn’t you want to get down with that?

You ready for a little Tahiti?
