Tahiti & French Polynesia travel guide

Tahiti & French Polynesia - Ra'iatea & Taha'a (Chapter)

9th Edition Sep 2012

This is the Ra'iatea & Taha'a chapter from Lonely Planet's Tahiti & French Polynesia guidebook.

Ra'iatea and Taha'a are encircled by a common lagoon, but here you get two very different islands. Ra'iatea is high, imposing and fiercely independent, while Taha'a has graceful low hills, is famous only for its sweet-scented vanilla and is arguably the quietest of the Society Islands.

  • feeling the power of Marae Taputapuatea, one of Polynesia's greatest spiritual centres
  • maps
  • diving the Nordby, a superb wreck very close to shore.
  • transport
  • taking an unforgettable hike to Temehani Plateau and looking for the tiare apetahi, one of the world's rarest flowers.
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Sights, Activities, Tours, Sleeping, Eating & Drinking and Shopping.
