Papeete, Tahiti ~ Nov 10, 2011

Papeete, Tahiti

November 10, 2011

Think of any superlative ~ beautiful, stunning, magnificent, spectacular and you’ll just begin to describe Tahiti, that island paradise countless have written of and even more have dreamed about.

The island of Tahiti (all 404 square miles) is large and proud, towering over the ocean like a royal Queen crowned with a circle of majestic peaks.  The mountainous interior shelters deep valleys, clear streams & high waterfalls, all bathed in green iridescence of Mother Natures light.

The flat coastal lands, edged with a rugged coastline, are home to fields of tropical flowers and the most of the island’s population.  Papeete, the invigorating capital city and gateway of the territory, boasts world-class resorts, spas, fine restaurants, nightclubs, and endless shopping at the vibrant markets, pearl shops and boutiques.
