My husband and I are going to Tahiti for 8 days in August. I should mention, we won this trip in a sweepstakes, and no matter how much I cajoled, begged, and pleaded, I could not get the sponsor's travel agent to book us to Moorea instead (even though the chain we are staying at has a hotel on Moorea, too!) We are still going to go to Moorea for an overnight trip, though, because I refuse to miss seeing it on what might be my only trip to Tahiti. But my question is about the big island of Tahiti, which is where we will be staying for most of this vacation: are there any classically aqua blue lagoons with sugary white sand bottoms on Tahiti? The view from Google Earth is pretty grim, but I know that photographs can be deceiving. Anyway, I would love to know from people who have been there whether there are any dreamlike blue lagoons on Tahiti proper, and if so, where. Thanks!
