5 archipelagos, 118 islands, a sea area as large as Europe 17,000 kilometres away.
The myth of the paradisiac island comes from breath-taking landscape with turquoise lagoons, lands covered in lush vegetation, coral reefs and palm-lined beaches.
From Bougainville to Gauguin, Tahiti has built its magical reputation years after years, centuries after centuries. Through written traditions and oral speeches, the island has been described countless times as an earthly paradise.
