Beach Day at Motu Mahea, Taha'a, French Polynesia

Taha'a is a quiet, flower-shaped island with soft mountains, surrounded by tiny motus, very small reef islands formed by broken coral and sand, with beautiful white-sand beaches.  The hillsides of Taha'a are filled with vanilla farms and the vanilla scent is in the air.

We anchor and head over to one of the motu for a day of beach, barbecue, and relaxation.  We swim in the warm water (air and water temperature around 82°F/28°C), snorkel around the reefs, and make use of the kayaks and paddle boards.

All too soon, it is time to leave our little motu and return to the ship for the next stop in our adventure.
