Near the beach of Atuona, Hiva Oa, French Polynesia
French Polynesia

This shot was taken from the road above the beach park near the town of Atuona, Hiva Oa.  There are some kids surfing in the water below.  Atuona is the main town in Hiva Oa and is a port of entry for sailors entering from the Americas.  Tahina was located in Taahuku Bay which is where the road comes from going away from town.

More About French Polynesia

Thousands of kilometres from anywhere, French Polynesia is the place to indulge yourself. Tahiti evokes images of tropical fruit dripping from strange trees... of translucent, shimmering aqua lagoons... of sun-drenched, sandy beaches, and psychedelic coral. A visit to Tahiti and her islands is akin to stumbling upon a parallel universe where fantasy is just another form of reality and hedonistic daydreams come to life. French Polynesia has captivated the world's imagination since 19th-century European explorers first set foot upon her steamy shores."
