Language
French and Tahitian are the main languages of these islands, however the English language is widely understood.
Currency
The French Polynesia franc is the official currency of the islands, however US dollars are accepted at some resorts. 
Climate
These islands enjoy year-round tropical weather. Dry season is between May to October with an average temperatures of 82 degrees F. November through April is the wetter season, with average temperatures of 86 degrees F and occasional rain showers.
Beaches
Though Tahiti is well-known for its white-sand beaches like Punaaui, the island also has a number of black and pink sand beaches, including Venus Point. If you are an experience surfer or just want to see impressive waves, Plage de Toaroto has stunning Pacific swells.
Activities
Further inland, Tahiti has impressive land, with rainforests and waterfalls in the mountains and fruiting tropical trees. A jeep or ATV excursion will allow you to see great views of the island, or hike through the forest. For a romantic excursion, visit Fautaua Waterfall, one of the tallest in the world which cascades over volcanic cliffs. The Maraa Grotto is also a popular cavern that has deceptively clear black water, making the cave feel smaller than it is. In Papeete, the capital city, a number of markets sell Tahitian treasures like black pearls and vanilla.
