Tahiti & French Polynesia - Tahiti (Chapter)
This is the Tahiti chapter from Lonely Planet's Tahiti & French Polynesia guidebook.
While Tahiti isn't the white-sand island of your holiday brochure, it is the heart of French Polynesia. Waterfall-laden, shadowy mountains; unpretentiously beautiful black-sand beaches; and a distinctly Polynesian buzz make Tahiti a gem in its own right.
