Must-See Places in Tahiti
As one of the leaders at Awaken.com, Entrepreneur and Wellness Guru Henry Gellis oversees strategic planning and fundraising for a company that searches for innovative technologies that reduce stress, including high-tech meditation as a mechanism to make brain waves more relaxed. He also maintains an interest in the use of Tibetan and Hindu mantras to change consciousness. In his free time, Henry Gellis enjoys traveling and has visited Tahiti, a French Polynesian island that offers a number of fascinating destinations. Here are a few of the most popular places to see:
- La Plage de Maui. A famous stretch of beach, La Plage de Maui features pearly white sand that stands out from the island's typical volcanic black sand. This south shore beach also features a lagoon with shallow, warm water.
- Marché de Papeete. A large market in Papeete, Marché takes up an entire city block. The market features vendors of shell necklaces, colorful pareo (sarongs), and woven hats, as well as meat and fish sellers.
- Musée de la Perle. Developed by the famous pearl dealer Robert Wan, this small pearl museum explains the ins and outs of the pearl-cultivating industry. Visitors can view the displays in English and explore Monsieur Wan’s beautiful jewelry collection.
