TAITI

Tahiti is the largest of the 118 islands and atolls that make up French Polynesia.
The 402 sq. miles of Tahiti's surface area consists of mountain peaks reaching over 7,353 ft. The deep green valleys are covered with rainforests and soft ferns, with waterfalls cascading into cool rivers and streams leading to
flat coastal land, with fields of taro and flowers.

Around Tahiti-Nui (big Tahiti), a 71 miles road winds between the mountains and the sea. And on the peninsula of Tahiti-Iti (little Tahiti) the road continues down each coast for 12 miles. An interior road leads past dairy farms and citrus groves to a panoramic view on the Plateau of Taravao -- the isthmus that connects the two islands.

Tahiti offers enough interesting excursions and sites to make it worth a short stay.
You can visit the Harrison Smith Botanical Gardens, learn something of the history of the islands at the Museum of Tahiti and Her Islands, view the undersea world at the Lagoonarium and go to he Gauguin Museum were you'll see a displays of some of the artist's paintings.
