Tahiti is the name given to the so-called Society Islands of French Polynesia. The largest island is also named Tahiti. The island's picturesque qualities have cuptured the imagination of artists, poets, writers AND lovers for generations.
French and Polynesian are the official languages, but English is widely spoken... almost universal in tourist areas.
Tahitians are polite and friendly, but somewhat reserved.
French cuisine is popular as are fresh seafood and tropical fruits. However, because of the world-wide popularity of the islands, a wide variety of international fare is readily available from pizza to sushi to burgers and fries.
If you are considering romantic Pacific island destinations, two names leap to the front of your mind: Tahiti and Fiji. But what is the difference? Which is right for you?
The answers are a bit complex, partly because Tahiti and Fiji are not single islands; they are groups of islands, varying greatly in features, terrain, ambience and amenities.
Both are usually reached from the USA by flights from Los Angeles. Tahiti is about 8-1/2 hour from L.A., while Tahiti is about 11 hours. Most flights are overnight so it's a meal, or two, a movie or two, a long nap and you are there.

Unspoiled. Unhurried. Uncrowded. If you've ever dreamed of a tropical paradise, you'll find it in Fiji. This archipelago of more than 300 islands will seduce you with its soft honey-sand beaches, lush waterfalls, swaying palm trees and pristine natural beauty.
English as well as Fijian and Hindi are the official languages.
Fijians and among the most friendly and outgoing on earth. Expect a rousing "Bula!" ("Hello - Welcome") and probably a hug from everone you meet. Where else do you find the staff of a hotel gathering to sing you a welcome song on arrival and a farewell song before you leave?
Fresh seafood and tropical fruits. Indian cuisine. International menus including familiar American favorites.
