Hiking Tahiti's Rugged East Coast

Jungles, coral-reef wading and rocky scrambling await Tahitian adventure hikers.

This exotic 3-day, 25-mile hike divides roughly into thirds: one part shin-deep wading on coral reefs, one part beach walking and scrambling across coastal cliffs, and one part rough-trail hiking over jungle headlands. Get picked up on the far side or spend another couple days returning via the rugged interior. Either way, traveling with a local guide is recommended, and don’t attempt the trip during rough seas.
