“Slip your feet into the grip of black sands”
There are a lot of beaches around the globe, but only a few are pretty famous in the list. People look for a lot of things when they plan to go on a vacation on some beaches, but if there is something really special and unique on a particular island, they don’t look at the other islands or beaches at all. Tahiti Island is very famous, which is known for its beauty as well as some unique features.
Tahiti is a Windward group of French Polynesia’s largest island, located in the Society Islands’ archipelago. It is broadly divided into two major parts – the bigger part, which consists of the northwestern part called Nui, and the smaller part, which consists of the southeastern part called Tahiti Iti.
It is surrounded by mountains with coral reefs and was formed, thanks to volcanic activity. The population is not too much, due to which there is a lot of space for the tourists to enjoy privacy as well.
Tahiti was first known as Otaheite, but later, it was named Tahiti. French is the only official language of this location, although Reo Maohi, the Tahitian language, is also pretty much spoken.
