Explore the island on a tour that incorporates Polynesian history and lifestyle, nature and tradition, as you discover the stunning scenery that our spectacular island has to offer. The drive south takes you along the delightful coast road surrounded by crystal clear lagoon waters and dramatic volcanic scenery covered in luscious vegetation, waterfalls, and geographical wonders. On the road side enjoy the sights of local fishermen selling their daily catch or tradesman selling their fruits and local produce.
The ancient religious site, Marae of Arahuruhu, set against a picturesque backdrop provides a real insight into ancient Polynesian culture, lifestyle and values. Be amazed by the stunning fern Caves of Maraa, where Paul Gauguin swam in the cool fresh waters with the local population. After a stop at the black sandy beach to watch the surfers, the wonderful botanical garden of Vaipahi lets you see the breathtaking vegetation up close and wonder at its size and beauty. The natural cold spring at Vaima is a a popular bathing spot at weekends and holidays. Sitting next to fields of Taro, the spot illustrates the Polyneisians fun nature, agricultural skills and their attachment to their land.
Lunch, looking out to sea at a hidden local restaurant on Tahiti Iti, is a great opportunity to swim from the delightful white sandy beach in front of the restaurant. On weekdays, a stop at the Monoi coconut oil factory provides a wonderful opportunity to learn about how this local product is made and used by Polynesians throughout their lives
