JULY - OCTOBER: During this school holiday period, things get very busy. In July and August, the whole country gets involved in the Heiva, a major and unique cultural event. For two months, the population lives at the rhythm of the biggest tahitian dance and traditional polynesian sport contest. In August, Tahiti also hosts one of the most famous surfing competitions in Teahupoo, where some of the biggest waves in the world hit our reefs. This is also that time of the year where the whales migrate to our oceans… so keep your eyes open, you might spot them! We call this time of the year the “dry” season, where the air gets slightly less humid and temperature a tiny bit colder at night.
