Ta'iarapu-Est (literally "Tai'arapu East") is a commune of French Polynesia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. The commune of Tai'arapu-Est is located on the island of Tahiti, in the administrative subdivision of the Windward Islands, themselves part of the Society Islands.
The commune extends over a part of Tahiti Nui ("big Tahiti") and half of the peninsula of Tahiti Iti ("small Tahiti", aka Tai'arapu). The commune also includes the uninhabited island of Mehetia (2.3 km²/0.9 sq. miles), located 112 kilometres (70 mi) east of Tahiti Iti. The administrative centre of the commune is the settlement of Taravao, on the isthmus linking Tahiti Nui and Tahiti Iti.
