Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the famous French oceanographer and explorer who carried out a large expedition here in , considered the waters surrounding the atoll to be the “most fish-filled in the world”.

George Robertson. An Account of the Discovery of Tahiti. Edited by Oliver Warner, Dent, I have owned An Account of the Discovery of Tahiti for a long time but had overlooked reading it. I picked it up out of curiosity to see how it compared with Herman Melville’s Typee, his nonfiction account of spending the better part of a year on the island of Nuku Hiva during his whaling days. Aphrodite's Island is a bold new account of the European discovery of Tahiti, the Pacific island of mythic status in Western imaginings about sexuality, the exotic, and the nobility or bestiality of 'savages'. In this groundbreaking book, Anne Salmond takes readers to the centre.

While The Society Islands get most of the attention, there are many other islands discerning travelers know offer unique views into authentic Tahiti. These Islands of Discovery packages take you to remarkable atolls, or stunning secluded islands that once found are hard to resist. The Discovery of Tahiti -- the Voyage of the Dolphin Romance and the islands have gone hand-in-hand since the bare-breasted young women of Tahiti gave a rousing welcome to the 18th-century European adventurers who discovered the island.
