The next day, we rented a car 🚘 and travelled around the island, our first stop was on a beach 🏖️ called “La plage de Vénus” a beautiful little creek where we enjoyed get tanned on the sand. We also spend some time looking in the souvenirs shops where local Tahitians make beautiful wooden art and decoration.
Later, we went to the Faarumai waterfalls, which was exceptionally beautiful, we had a picnic in front of the water and swim. The afternoon we went to the Billabong surf contest, it was absolutely worth it, we saw the best surfers in the world catch huge waves. On our way back to the boat we stopped at a Tahitian botanical garden, with so many different plant species we don’t have in Europe! We walked around for an hour before going back to our boat.
In the evening, we decided to go eat in a local restaurant where they have almost only fish dishes 🐟, but we liked them a lot.
