Circle Island Tour

Circle Island Tour - Circle Island Tour of Tahiti.

The tour begins with the 'Tahara'a view point', on the east coast, where you may take some nice pictures of Moorea.

Venus Point, situated in the north on the edge of Matavai Bay, was the special scene of successive landings of European navigators. James Cook gave the name Venus in memory of his scientific trip to observe the planet.

The Arahoho Blow Hole is a lavatube designed by liquid lava flowing under cold and hard lava and creating a channel. When waves crash against the rocks and enter in this channel, the result is a powerful sea water geyser that showers on lookers.

Visit the waterfalls, located at Faarumai in a luxuriant setting. Walk across a bamboo plantation and follow pretty trails… an exotic contact.
(the number of waterfalls visited depends on time available)

Go through Taravao, the strategic isthmus joining Tahiti Nui and Tahiti Iti, and have a lunch at the Gauguin Restaurant, before or after visiting the Gauguin Museum.

The Gauguin Museum displays an amazing retrospective on the life and works of Paul Gauguin, the famous French artist who spent the last twelve years of his life on Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands.

Make a stop at Vaipahi Garden, a place where you will see a little waterfall, some endemic tahitian flowers, trees and other plants.

Marae Arahurahu is a restored religious site dedicated to the ancient gods where important ceremonies used to take place.
