FRENCH POLYNESIA ~ Tahiti - Le Diadème ~

...Breathtaking and overwhelming nature view coming from French Polynesia, Tahiti... this mythic mountain, Le Diadème (the tiara) crowns the island as the “Queen of the South Pacific.”... a paradise of rainforests, mountains and black-sand beaches....with wonderful stamp too...Thanks a lot Vanessa!! ❀◕ ‿ ◕❀

Located in the archipelago of the Society Islands in the central Southern Pacific Ocean, Tahiti is the largest island of French Polynesia, and was formed from volcanic activity.

The island is divided into two sections, with the northwestern portion being Tahiti Nui ("big Tahiti") and the smaller, southeastern portion being Tahiti Iti ("small Tahiti").

 While coral reefs surround the coastal waters, much of the island's interior is mountainous - it's highest point is Mont Orohena at 2,241 m. Lush rainforests cover the landscape of Tahiti, and the Papenoo River flows through the north side of the island.
