The capital, Papeete, sits on the shores of the largest island, Tahiti, which is dominated by Mont Orohena’s forested slopes. Its sister island, Moorea, is much smaller, with white-sand beaches that lead into the warm waters of Haapito Lagoon. Bora Bora lures artists and writers with its galleries and cafés, while Huahine is a garden of fruit plantations and forests. The little-visited Marquesas Islands, relentlessly buffeted by Pacific surf, are adventurous isles where wild horses roam.
