Whether you’re planning a honeymoon or bringing along the whole family, the Islands of Tahiti are the perfect spot for you. Just about an 8-hour flight from Los Angeles, you don’t have to spend too much vacation time to get to paradise. Most overwater bungalows here come with a view of lush scenery (like Mount Otemanu on Bora Bora). The Islands of Tahiti are some of the world’s best for snorkeling: the colorful coral gardens attract butterfly fish, turtles and manta rays, to name a few. Bonus: grab a snorkel and dive right in from the deck of your bungalow.
