Tahiti & French Polynesia - The Australs & The Gambier Archipelago (Chapter)
This is the Australs & the Gambier Archipelago chapter from Lonely Planet's Tahiti & French Polynesia guidebook.
The magnificent and pristine Austral Islands are arguably French Polynesia's most underrated destination. You'll find flower-filled jungles, sharp peaks, outrageously blue water and genuinely friendly people. More remote is the Gambier Archipelago -jaw-droppingly beautiful and a best-kept secret of French Polynesia.
