To Tahiti!

My wife and I are flying to Australia in June through Tahiti. What are some of the supermarket otions while we are there that cruisers use? We are doing a little bit of recon for our trip south some day. Where are the spots to shop. there have been mentions of 'COSTCO-LIKE' stores there. Where are they?

We will be staying in Papeete and will have a rental car, so getting around will be easy.

I haven't been to Tahiti for over 26 years and I look forward to seeing the changes. From Google, I see that it has grown ALOT!

I'd love to hear from anyone who has actually been there recently.

THANKS!

Re: To Tahiti!

Carrefour down by Marina Taina in Puna'auia is probably where most cruisers store ship.
The Pink Coconut is the closest bar to the dinghy dock.
Cheers,

Re: To Tahiti!

We will be staying near downtown Papeete and look forward to seeing how it has changed. I hear the food trucks have gotten very popular but the food quality isn't very good.

Is there any chance of renting a 22'-25' monohull while we are there for a day sail? Anyone need a part or something else (legal) delivered to Tahiti in trade for a day of sailing?

Figured I'd ask.

Re: To Tahiti!

We are only using this trip to OZ as an excuse to stop into Tahiti. Hopefully, we will be back in just a few years. The next time, arriving by sail.

Thanks for the information.
