Easter in French Polynesia

Tahiti-2 PM 007

Everyone loves Easter egg hunts, candy-filled baskets, and soft, fluffy bunnies. But this Easter, I opted for a different kind of holiday experience. Three of the 130 islands in the South Pacific known as “French Polynesia” were calling my name.

Tahiti, the largest and most well-known island in French Polynesia was to be my base and first stop – you can only fly to the other islands from Tahiti. Since their discovery over 200 years ago, Tahiti conjures up visions of swaying coconut-palmed beaches, and fragrant tiare blossoms. It’s surrounded entirely by a coral reef, contrasted by the two towering volcanic peaks in the center of the island.
