There are few places in the world and particularly in French Polynesia (known as Tahiti) where you can walk from your bungalow into the warm waters of the Pacific to snorkel and swim with the fish. This is Vahine Island just a 40 minute flight from Papeete, Tahiti. This paradise has only nine-bungalows (3-over water, 3 beach suites, and 3-beach bungalows.) My favorite are the beach suites as they have both a front (beach) and back (coconut plantation) porch to relax on and sip your favorite drink. The dining here is wonderful and everything is designed to meet and exceed your desire for the tropics. Don’t forget to have a massage in the spa bungalow on a nearby islet for the perfect experience.
