Ports

Papeete

A look beyond its bustling waterfront will reveal the island paradise French artist Paul Gauguin came to explore and embrace. The island’s lush interior is a canvas of deep green valleys, 7,000 feet-high peaks and cascading waterfalls. On the south shore lies the Gauguin Museum at Mataiea while at Tautira on the north coast, other famous names like Captain Cook and Robert Louis Stevenson came to call. Back in Papeete, visit the restored ancient temple of Arahurahu Marae or shop for cultured black pearls.

Majestic mountains sculpted by ancient volcanoes, a shimmering lagoon and a barrier reef dotted with tiny motu or islets welcome visitors to perhaps the most stunning island in the South Pacific, and generations of travelers — including novelist James Michener — regarded Bora Bora as an earthly paradise. Approximately, a mere 4,600 people live a seemingly idyllic lifestyle in the main villages of Vaitape, Anau and Faanui.

Rotorua (some miles inland from the port of Tauranga) is the center of New Zealand's thermal area on the North Island. Spectacular phenomena such as geysers, boiling mud, hot pools, hot springs, and spouts of gushing steam can be seen. Lake Rotorua's waters are icy, yet the sandy shores are too warm for bare feet to walk upon. Rotorua is also the center of Maori life and culture, with a model village, displays of carving, and concerts of Maori music and singing. Tauranga, meaning "shelter" (named by Capt. Cook the Bay of Plenty), with its population of 48,000, is now a modern thriving city supported by the export of lumber and farming. This popular holiday resort is a paradise for deep-sea fishermen, and close to the golden sands of Ohope Beach for surfing and swimming.
