The Paradise is a Safe Place
You are here : General Information > Security
Tahiti has a relatively low crime rate, and in most cases you should feel safe walking in the streets at night. Commonsense should, of course, prevail - don’t walk alone down dark alleys, encourage or provoke. In Papeete, late at night, you may come across transvestites (a throwback to traditional Polynesian society), we would suggest you treat them in good humour.
In the islands, things are even quieter, although again, use commonsense in any unusual situations.
It is always a good idea to keep your hotel door locked, and to use the hotel safe, we are confident that you’ll find Tahiti and her islands compares more than favourably in this light with other similar destinations, however, it is better to be “safe than sorry”
