Carly is very friendly and I felt i could ask her all of my questions without feeling stupid! I will definitely contact her again (and very shortly) when we book our next cruise. We have decided that there is no other way for us to holiday."

Vairao is a small port on the SW peninsula coast of Tahiti, in French Polynesia, in the South Pacific. The island of Tahiti is like a figure 8 – the smaller part called Tahiti Iti, or “little Tahiti” (the main part of the island Tahiti Nui or “big Tahiti” with capital Pape’ete). Vairao port lies on the western coast of Tahiti Iti, and is known as a significant site for experienced surfers, with long waves breaking over a coral reef – “perfect left-hander with a steep, hollow barrel at the take-off followed by a long wall for a few hundred metres”.

Vairao is also the location of the Iti Diving Centre, that visits 15 sites flourishing with corals, fish and humpback whales in season. The port faces a large lagoon stretching a great length of the coastline, and is approached through a 500 m opening to the sea. The lagoon is noted for its fishing. The coastal road that runs along the western side of the peninsula offers magnificent views out to sea, and inland to jagged 1000 m peaks. In town there’s a casino, mall, pleasure centre, and delightful French pastries. Dine out on freshly steamed fish and local produce such as taro and breadfruit.

The 34 km coastal road will take you just two thirds of the way around the peninsula, the remaining coastline having sloping terrain to the sea. This magnificent region is bypassed by the tourist industry, yet boasts clear waters, waterfalls, archaeological sites and caves. People are friendly and welcoming. Get around Tahiti Iti by car, le truck, or hitching. During the first two weeks of May, the Tahiti Gotcha Pro Surf Contest brings crowds from Papeete and abroad to Teahupoo, 6 km south of Vairao. It is extremely difficult to find accommodation at this time.
