Tahaa is an island located among the Society Islands, in French Polynesia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. The islands of Tahaa and neighboring Raiatea are enclosed by the same coral reef, and may once have been a single island.

Taha’a, with the rich aroma of vanilla lingering heavily in the air, offers a glimpse of the traditional, tranquil life of the Tahitians. The flower-shaped island’s simple beauty is charmed by soft mountain shapes and surrounded by tiny motu with bright sand beaches. In the fertile valleys cutting within the island, local farmers grow watermelon, vanilla, and copra.

Huahine is an overlooked paradise in French Polynesia.

For one thing, the island is, arguably, the most picturesque in all of French Polynesia… With steep mountains descending into protected bays of azure blue and emerald green colors, the island is also one of the more geographically diverse of the Society Group.

Also known as “The Garden Island” due to its abundance of lush green tropical foliage and wild jungle-like scenery, Huahine is one of the more interesting of the Society Islands to explore.

Huahine itself is actually 2 islands known as Huahine-Nui and Huahine-Iti (Big Huahine and little Huahine). Interconnected by a bridge, both islands can be easily explored in a day or two, making this a travel destination you will never forget.

There are many things that make Huahine stand out among the Society islands, but perhaps the most treasured one is the much saught after idea of solitude and quietness.

Similar to its cousins Raiatea and Tahaa, Huahine is far less touristed than Moorea, Bora Bora and Tahiti! (and that’s a good thing) This island is so relaxing and stress free that many people pick it as their favorite Society Island after traveling here just once.

There’s also an abundance of long and beautiful white sandy beaches on Huahine… and the good news is that on this island, most of them are easily accessible for total quality beach and sun worshiping.

All these wonderful attributes and more make Huahine a fascinating world destination for you to explore. Take some quality time as you browse the pages and information of our site and enjoy your stay.

Raiatea and Tahaa are two of French Polynesia’s favorite undiscovered treasures…

Far less traveled than Bora Bora, Tahiti, or Moorea, these two fascinating islands offer the vacationer the experience of a true unspoiled French Polynesia.

The larger of the two islands, Raiatea, is only slightly smaller than Tahiti itself. This makes Raiatea the second largest Island in the French Polynesian Archipelago known as the Society Islands, and the largest of the “Leewards.”

Located directly between Bora Bora and Tahiti, Raiatea is closely situated to all the wonderful South Pacific islands known to the world as Tahiti Polynesia.

Raiatea itself is recognized throughout Tahiti as it’s “Sacred Island”- the cultural heart of all Tahiti Polynesia. It is believed by historians that Raiatea was the main stopover point for early Polynesians newly arrived from Hawaii, then known as Hav’aii.

The Island holds much fascinating history, legend, and lore, as well as Tahiti’s most significant archaeological sites.

Moʻorea is a high island in French Polynesia, part of the Society Islands, 17 km (roughly 9 mi) northwest of Tahiti.  Moʻorea means “yellow lizard” in Tahitian. An older name for the island is ʻAimeho, sometimes spelled ‘Aimeo or ʻEimeo (among other spellings misunderstood by early visitors with no knowledge of the language). Early Western colonists and voyagers also referred to Moʻorea as York Island.

Because of its stunning scenery and accessibility to Papeetē, Moʻorea is visited by many western tourists who travel to French Polynesia. Especially popular as a honeymoon destination, Moʻorea can often be seen in advertisements in American wedding magazines. Arthur Frommer declared in Frommer’s travel guide that he considered it the most beautiful island in the world.

Bora Bora is an island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, an overseas collectivity of France in the Pacific Ocean. The island, located about 230 kilometres (140 mi) northwest of Papeete, is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island are the remnants of an extinct volcano rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, the highest point at 727 meters (2,385 ft).

Bora Bora is a major international tourist destination, famous for its aqua-centric luxury resorts. The major settlement, Vaitape is on the western side of the main island, opposite the main channel into the lagoon. Produce of the island is mostly limited to what can be obtained from the sea and the plentiful coconut trees, which were historically of economic importance for copra. According to a census performed in 2008, the permanent population of Bora Bora is 8,880.

Today the island is almost entirely dependent on tourism. Over the last few years several resorts have been built on motu (small islands, from Tahitian) surrounding the lagoon. Thirty years ago, Hotel Bora Bora built the first over-the-water bungalows on stilts over the lagoon and today, over-water bungalows are a standard feature of most Bora Bora resorts. The quality of those bungalows ranges from comparably cheap, basic accommodations to very luxurious and expensive places to stay. Most of the tourist destinations are aqua-centric; however it is possible to visit attractions on land such as WWII cannons. Air Tahiti has five or six flights daily to the Bora Bora Airport on Motu Mute from Tahiti (as well as from other islands). The island is served by Bora Bora Airport on Motu Mete in the north, with Air Tahiti providing daily flights to and from Papeete on Tahiti.

Tahiti is the largest island in the Windward group of French Polynesia, located in the archipelago of the Society Islands in the southern Pacific Ocean. It is the economic, cultural and political centre of French Polynesia. The island was formed from volcanic activity and is high and mountainous with surrounding coral reefs. The population is 178,133 , making it the most populous island of French Polynesia and accounting for 68.6% of the group’s total population. Tahiti was formerly known as Otaheite.

Tahiti is the highest and largest island in French Polynesia lying close to Moorea island. It is located 4,400 km (2,734 mi) south of Hawaii, 7,900 km (4,909 mi) from Chile and 5,700 km (3,542 mi) from Australia. An interior road climbs past dairy farms and citrus groves with panoramic views. Tahiti’s landscape features lush rainforests and many streams, including the Papenoo River on the north side.

Tahiti is a word that evokes images of lush tropical landscapes; of crystal clear azure lagoons surrounded by soaring volcanic peaks; of love and romance; of gentle goddesses and fierce warriors, it is the stuff of dreams and legends. The first explorers returned home boasting that they had discovered heaven on earth; writers and artists have captured its planning when to go back. So, what is it about Tahiti & Her Islands which makes us forget that life is short and that there is a world of beauty and tranquillity just waiting to be discovered?
