July with dad (70) and me (37) where for nightlife & scuba?

I need suggestions for where to go en route to Brisband in late July. I want to scuba and be in a "busy" area/around single set. Dad doesn't like beach, so he needs something to do or see. Any suggestions? Fiji, Tahiti...where would be okay for 3 days?

1. Re: July with dad (70) and me (37) where for nightlife & scuba?

Generally "nightlife" and "French Polynesia" are not phrases used in the same breath (except to comment that there really isn't much of it). Likewise "busy" and "French Polynesia" and "single set" and "French Polynesia".

In fact, as a general rule those phrases are seldom used together in the South Pacific region.

Papette MIGHT provide some of what you are looking for, but maybe Fiji would be a better choice as it's a much larger nation with a population greater than that of all of Polynesia combined.

Ia orana "Surf City Usa" bikinigirl

HB will offer you night life than the entire South Pacific !

Scuba for 3 days (- 1 day for the no flying after the dive ) will restrict you to Tahiti and Moorea. Papeete will have some limited night life (Type in the Search Box on the left hand side of ths page "Tahiti nighlife" )

Enjoy your trip

google "Nightlife in French Polynesia"

you get stars, moonlight, the sound of the lagoon, tranquility, serenity, the sound of silence and fish jumping..........

wonderfully heartwarming & entertaining

sometimes you hear some drums in the distance:)

You don't really get that when you google it, but that is all there is.

Best Regards

Bo

Agree with Meherio. Tahiti-Papeete for the nightlife and a little culture for dad. Moorea for the beautiful beaches and the diving. Your dad may also enjoy a spin around Moorea in a rental car as the scenery is quite beautiful.

sunny regards,
