While you are driving around the island you need to keep a sharp eye out for the brown point of interest signs. Not much at some of them but usually interesting. This was one of those.

There is nothing grand about the tomb of the last Tahitian king. The whole thing looks rather odd but it's worth the detour if you are driving around Tahiti. It is in front of a beach that seems to be popular with locals.

The history of this tomb is interesting. There is not much around it, but it is worth a stop on a driving tour of the island.

Besides the tomb, there is a footbridge where the fish are very busy, and also a circular structure with rocks on the wall that represent all the islands. he

If you are touring the island and have your own car this site is worth a quick stop just to take in a little history of the island. If you are on a time schedule and the scenery of Tahiti is more what you are interested in this might be something to skip.

Clean and well maintained, safe, scenic and historical,don't just drive by. It's not far from town and then you can stop at the Royal Tahitian Hotel and have a drink and watch the sun setting over Moorea.

The tomb is located behind a church which has its own car park . It's by a beach with showers but beyond the land belong to the parish and further out is the private area for the French army and navy recreational seafront. What you see is what you get ! Nothing else - Perhaps the only king's who's tomb... More

Look out for this modest monument beside the coastal road. It is 6km out from Papeete just before you reach the Radisson Resort, on the way to Point Venus.

Sadly the Tomb is now very over grown with scrubs and trees. But for historical reasons we made a stop here as we toured the island. If you go at the weekend it is a busy location for locals. There was more going on around the area which made it more interesting. There is a small beach for swimming or... More
