All About 

Tahiti

Tahiti is the largest of the islands that make up French Polynesia, a set of 118 volcanic and coral islands and atolls located in the South Pacific Ocean. Of all the islands, Tahiti is the economic, cultural, and political center of French Polynesia. Located halfway between Los Angeles and Sydney, Australia, the island is divided into Tahiti Nui and Tahiti Iti. Tahiti Nui is the bigger of the two and is located in the northwestern part of the island. It is also home to three extinct volcanic mountains, including Mount Orohena, the tallest in French Polynesia. Tahiti Iti is a smaller southwest sister island that is still connected to the main island. The Little Tahiti is only accessible by boat and is more remote and tranquil. It is also home to the legendary surfing spot of Teahupoo.

No matter where you travel within the island, one thing is sure, you will be amazed by its beauty. Tahiti is known for its black and white sand beaches, blue lagoons, stunning lush jungles, volcanic mountains, gorgeous coral reefs, beautiful waterfalls, and abundant undersea wildlife. The landscapes blend perfectly with the friendly Tahitian culture known for its history and traditions, including the mythical concept of mana. It is also famous for its pearl farming, vanilla plantations, dance culture, and ancient ruins.
