Board a boat for a scenic ride to Taha'a, passing a pristine blue lagoon and islets on the way to the mainland.

Hopping ashore, you'll set out on a gentle walk to reach the vanilla plantation that makes Taha'a so famous. The vanilla grown here is world-renowned and there is no doubt you will thoroughly enjoy this delightful sensory immersion into its flavor. Used in the composition of many products, vanilla is the ideal take-home souvenir and can be purchased from the boutique.

Returning to the boat, continue your outing on the beautiful, clear waters en route to an islet that is the venue for the perfect beach break. Put on your mask and snorkel and head into the water, or simply relax on the sandy shoreline with your feet in the sea.

A lunch of local delicacies will be served in the shade.
