What is Tahiti
Tahiti lies in the South Pacific. It is the largest of the 118 islands and atolls that comprise French Polynesia. Tahiti is located in the Society Islands, an archipelago which includes the islands of Bora Bora, Raiatea, Taha'a, Huahine and Moorea, and has a population of 127,000 people, about 83% of whom are of Polynesian ancestry. The legendary name 'Tahiti' not only identifies this island but also the group of islands that make up French Polynesia.

About Tahiti elsewhere
"Moorea The soaring volcanic peaks along the spine of the island of Moorea, one of the French Polynesian islands in the South Pacific, are a dramatic sight reflected in the mirrors of the crystal lagoons that surround this tropical paradise."
"The French Polynesian islands occupy a vast area of the South Pacific, offering enclaves of tropical forests where orchids grow wild, palm-fringed sandy beaches, azure lagoons and brilliant offshore coral reefs."
"French Polynesia Travel Guide."
"The first French Polynesian islands to be settled by Polynesians were the Marquesas Islands in AD 300 and the Society Islands in AD 800."
"Tahiti Nui Travel French Polynesian agent specializing in Tahiti and the South Pacific."
"It's French Polynesia's biggest, most famous and historically interesting island, but the glossy pictures that you see in travel agents' windows are quite likely to be some other French Polynesian island."
"(and of course the obligatory Papeete on the way out)."
"That's not always the case, so you should look in shops like Ron Hall's Island Fashion Black Pearls (on Moorea) and Matira Pearls (on Bora Bora) before making a purchase in Papeete."
"If you're going to downtown, watch for the Route 5 signs directing you to the expressway connecting Papeete to the west coast."
"The capital town, Papeete, is attractive and fun with its lively waterfront, vibrant market and some first class restaurants."
"The Air Moorea terminal (Terminal 2) in Papeete is located away from the main air terminal."
"Proceeding clockwise from Papeete, you'll leave town by turning inland off boulevard Pomare and following the broad avenue du Prince-Hinoi ,the start of the round-island road."
"Whereas Tahiti Nui is quite heavily populated (especially around Papeete )and benefits from rather good infrastructure such as roads and highways, Tahiti Iti has remained quite isolated, its southeastern half ( Te Pari )being accessible only by boat or hiking."
"But there is a bright side to Tahiti's development: Using money from a post-nuclear-testing economic restructuring fund, Papeete has done a remarkable job in refurbishing its waterfront, including a cruise-ship terminal and a classy park where families gather and the city celebrates its festivals."
"Four maps of the capital Papeete are provided, and this edition contains new town plans of Hauru (Moorea) and Hakahau (Ua Pou) and island maps of Fakarava and Tikehau."
