papeete was like home to us as we docked there every week,we would always go to paradise,well its a bit tacky but fun trying to poledance ! piano bar was not far away , men be warned -if the women look too good to be true -they usually are ! every sat night they have a drag show at 1.00am !
girls can wear what we want but some guys that came with us often wernt allowed in some places in flip flops
Several islands offer sunset tours. In case you are located on the wrong side of the island, a boat or catamaran will bring you to the other side of the island where you can watch the sun going down. It's so romantic.
Casual but bring something with long sleeves for when it gets dark. It will be a little bit windy on the boat.

Most nightlife is concentrted in Papeete where there are clubs and bars.In the islands, hotels generally have a band playing at the bar and the locals will be regulars at the ones with the good reputation of the moment.There are also polynesian shows with local dance groups.In Moorea, Club Med has a GO show and a nightclub open to the public every night.But nightlife is at its best in July when a yearly celebration takes place with dance, music, arts and craft and rowing competitions in most islands.
One word: Casual!

Le Tamure Hut in the Hotel Royal PapeeteBecause it is an Hotel it has Air conditioning, It has a Tahitain decor and the music can cover all tastes depending on the night you go.
Because this is an Hotel, smart to casual is acceptable.

On Raiatea there is a Chinese restaurant right in the harbor area that looks like a hole in the wall. Apparently, there is a disco either in or above this restaurant and most of the cruise ship people go there to party the night away. I heard it was a great time!
Everything in French Polynesia is casual

Avoid nightlife in Tahiti at all cost! Tahiti has the highest AIDS per capia in the Pacific region because of the crossroad of the Pacific. Polynesian people desparately need your tourist money by selling their bodies. They are dying and spreaded rapidly. It is not worth for your life by going to bars, nightclubs, brothels and mingling with Polynesian women and men.. It is too dangerous especially for French tourists. They would destroy your prospect future!
margaretvn's Nightlife Tip
Eating and drinking under the tropical sky at the harbour, listening to the local music and chatting to the locals and fellow travellers, breathing in the scent of the flowers - could anything be better?
casual - but take a cardigan with you as the sun sets it can get chilly and you will not want to leave until late!
Those islands have some amazing sunrises and sunsets. You only have sun from 6 am to 6 pm, so you have to enjoy every minute of it
Hinano is the local Polynesian beer, and about the only beer that you will find on most of the islands. Give it a try.
There is not much nightlife on the islands but most of the hotels offer nights of special acitvities such as Polynesian dance or some Polynesian cultural activity like "how to wear a pareo" ....
