Tahiti, Teahupoo beach, swell
Teahupoo is a superb surfer beach in the south of Tahiti island, French Polynesia. The wave is good, but very dangerous, thus suitable for experienced surfers only. The uniqueness is in the reef, which partially extinguishes the swell from the west end. It gives the opportunity to make excellent photos being right in the center of it all, but without any danger to the camera man. That's why, there are so many relaxed watchers just chilling out at the edge of abyss. / read more » /

Bora Bora island, Hilton beach
Hilton - hotel in Bora Bora. Mount Otemanu is not visible from the hotel's motu. Moreover water bungalows run along the beach spoiling the landscape. As the advantage we want to notice beautiful tropical garden, located near the beach. We recommend not to settle in a water bungalow. Garden bungalow is best value for money. This way you can save a lot of money and get a nice view. / read more » /
