Tahaa, slightly smaller and less populated than Raiatea, shares a wonderful lagoon rich in sealife and watersports activities such as scubadiving, windsurfing, and outrigger canoeing. The surrounding waters of both Islands are also known the world over for their legendary sailing, yachting, and sportfishing opportunities. Tahaa's nickname is the «Vanilla Island«- because of it's constant rich aroma of vanilla. In fact, the Island boasts a full 80% of all Tahiti's Vanilla production. Both Islands are also inundated with Pearl Farms legendary for their superb quality, high aesthetic appeal, and value.
