Tahiti, Queen of the South Pacific. Tahiti, the largest island in French Polynesia towers over the ocean like a proud and royal Queen and is appropriately crowned by a circle of majestic peaks.
The mountainous interior is adorned with deep valleys, clear streams, and high waterfalls, all bathed in green iridescence of Mother Nature’s light. The coastal lands, edged with a rugged coastline, are home to fields of tropical flowers and most of the island’s population.
Papeete, meaning the “water basket” was once a gathering place where Tahitians came to fill their calabashes with fresh water. Now the invigorating capital city and gateway of the country, boasts world-class resorts, spas, fine dining and unique restaurants, nightclubs, vibrant markets, pearl shops, and boutiques.
