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