The islands of Tahiti, officially known as French Polynesia, are a gorgeous selection of volcanic islands and atolls strewn across 1.5 million square miles of the grand South Pacific Ocean.
Tahiti is the largest of the 118 enchanting islets of French Polynesia. Crowned by Polynesia’s two highest peaks, surrounded by spectacular coral reefs and black sand beaches, Tahiti is often referred to as the “island of love”.
The three major islands of Tahiti are: Papeete it’s capital, Moorea, and Bora Bora.
What makes Tahiti magical, is their volcanic peaks that soar magically out of the ocean in an explosion of green velvet and reflect in the tranquil waters.
A wide, shallow lagoon surrounds the island’s mountains where poetic threads of waterfalls tumble down the cliffs. Pastel-painted houses surrounded by gardens of hibiscus and birds of paradise circle the island in a fantasy of happy, yet simple villages.
