Also on the island of Raiateia, there is the most sacred place in French Polynesia - Marae Taputapuatea, an ancient sacred complex where religious ceremonies took place, as well as meetings of travellers and ship navigators.
Other islands to be discovered along the way are equally charming - Tahaa, Bora Bora and Huahin.
