Happy Easter from Tahiti.com! If you happen to find yourself in Tahiti this holiday, you’re in for a real treat. Easter, like every Sunday morning, is considered a special time for the locals. They attend church dressed in all white—the women wearing lovely hats—and sing beautiful hymns (himenes) for all to hear.
If you’re staying in Papeete, check out Eglise Evangélique (Temple Paofai) located on Boulevard Pomare. Inaugurated in 1873, this pale pink church is the largest Protestant church in French Polynesia. You can take a nice walking tour to the church from downtown Papeete in the morning. Keep in mind that many of the business and restaurants will be closed for the holiday. Joyeuses Pâques!
