Tahiti: The Honeymoon More Couples Dream About

July 18, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Ask engaged couples where their dream honeymoon would be and the answer most often heard is Tahiti and Her Islands. What is it about Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea, and Huahine that conjure up romance? Is it the sheer beauty of the lush volcanic peaks, turquoise lagoons and tropical flowers? Or is it that couples can find secluded, powdery white beaches to enjoy all alone?
According to Michelle Mangio, Honeymoon Specialist and Tahiti Tiare Agent of Magical Escapes Vacations, it’s all that and more. “Couples today want lots of activities on their honeymoon, as well as to be in a romantic setting. We send a lot of newlyweds to Tahiti because they want to snorkel, dive, hike, go sailing, and learn about the Polynesian culture.” Some of the favorite activies are shark feeding, jeep tours into the islands’ lush interiors, horseback riding, and leisurely cycling around the islands.
“Honeymooners are made to feel extra special when they’re in Tahiti,” Mangio added. “They can have their breakfast delivered by outrigger canoe to their overwater bungalow – it’s very romantic.”
Traditional Tahitian wedding ceremonies, while not legally binding, are popular with couples who want to renew their vows with a dramatic Polynesian sunset as a backdrop. A Tahitian high priest blesses the couple, gives them their Tahitian names, and offers a Tahitian name for the couple’s first born child.
Magical Escapes Vacations has been arranging fabulous Tahiti honeymoons and romance vacations for four years to couples all over New England and the United States. For information about traveling in the Islands Beyond the Ordinary, call 866-698-7849.
