French Polynesia 1: Tahiti

French Polynesia  1: Tahiti

Just mention French Polynesia and the first place that comes to mind is usually Tahiti; it is the largest and the most populated of French Polynesia's Society Islands. This south Pacific paradise is only 28 miles wide, but its highest point, Mount Orohena, is 7,352 feel above sea level. The rich soils of the volcanic mountains here support lush vegetation and one of the best ways to take in the sites is with a 4 x 4, as we do here, into the jungle-like interior to enjoy many natural beauties, including cascading waterfalls and magnificent pools that provide a striking contrast to the black sand beaches and turquoise lagoons that surround the island. Tahiti's population is approximately 180,000 people and the largest city and capital is Papeete, which is located on the northwest coast; this part of the island is known as Tahiti Nui or "Big Tahiti"; the smaller and more remote section, which is connected by the Taravao Isthmus, is called Tahiti Iti or "Small Tahiti." As you'll discover, Tahiti, no matter how you say it, is a place that no one who visits ever forgets. 05/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
