This flower-shaped island has a simple and authentic Tahitian beauty. With bright sand beaches, and vibrant lagoon waters, there’s plenty to enjoy near the shore, including kayak, swimming and scuba diving. Or, take a boating excursion to see some of the island’s famous pearl farms. Further inland, soft and fertile mountains are home to watermelon and vanilla farms, the latter of which fills the island air like a sweet perfume. On land, hike with a guide to the Temehani Plateau or slopes of Mount Temehani.
