Location: Vahine Island on Motu Tu Vahine, Taha
Located in the heart of the of the Society Islands Archipelago, in close proximity to Tahaa, the Vanilla Island, lies Motu Tu Vahine, an authentically Polynesian island which you will have the opportunity to discover. Contrary to most over touted tourist destinations, Tahaa has managed to stay refreshingly real, unadulterated and preserved: pearl farms, traditional vanilla plantations, copra farming, and fishing constitute it's principal activities and resources. Tahaa is an island full of legends and secrets to reveal to the visitor who seeks to know more about the magic of Polynesia.
