Tahiti & French Polynesia - Tahiti (PDF Chapter)
This is the Tahiti chapter from Lonely Planet’s Tahiti & French Polynesia guidebook.
The heart of the islands, what Tahiti lacks in wide white-sand beaches, it makes up for in waterfall-laden, shadowy mountains, unpretentiously beautiful black-sand beaches, sheltered blue lagoons and a distinctly Polynesian modern buzz.
