Life slows down on Taha'a island. This charming and quiet island sweeps you deep into the typical Polynesians' easy going life. Tiny motu with luminous white sand beaches surround the flower-shaped island with a soft mountain rising from the calm waters of a lagoon. Vanilla-scented air wafts on breezes that pour down the hillsides from the island's many vanilla farms. Slanted palm trees rise above pristine white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and overwater bungalows.
