The island of Tahiti is one of several gems that comprise French Polynesia and make up the archipelago known as the Society Islands. A small isthmus connects the larger Tahiti Nui to the peninsula of Tahiti Iti. The generally high price of visiting the island and its remote distance makes it something of a once-in-a-lifetime destination, but certainly one that will be remembered for many years to come. In the commune of Faa’a is the Faa’a International Airport
. The French Polynesian capital of Papeete is located just to the east.
The island’s long history and its immense beauty are the highlight of traveling the area. The Arahoho Blowhole and Les Trois Cascades are a couple of the top natural attractions drawing visitors of the island. For immersion in the culture and history of the land, there is the Museum of Tahiti and the Islands
. A black sand beach can be found at the Pointe Venus Lighthouse, and an excellent golf course provides recreation at the Atimoana complex. Local shopping opportunities can be enjoyed at Le Marche, and around Papeete, the black pearl can be one of the best buys.
As an island destination, accommodation on Tahiti is found all along the coast, ensuring no matter where one stays, there will be plenty of beautiful ocean views to take it. The eastern coast of the island, near the capital city, is where the highest concentration of hotels, bungalows, and other properties can be found.
