Head towards the east coast of Tahiti to visit the James Norman Hall House. This interesting home displays the daily environment of the famous poet and writer of contemporary American literature.

Continue to Matavai Bay and Point Venus. This was the historic landing site for most European explorers and evangelists, and was also the point from which Captain Cook observed the transit of Venus in 1769. It boasts the only lighthouse on the island, built in 1867.

Your last stop will include a short walk to the Tahara Viewpoint. Your guide will allow you some time here to appreciate view and snap a few photos.

French Polynesia's geological features include coral reefs, coral beaches, sea, mountains and some uneven ground. Wear comfortable attire and walking, hiking or water shoes.
