Taha'a Island Honeymoon
Tahaa... The Vanilla Island
Taha’a, with its rich aroma of vanilla as you stroll through the island, is a traditional, tranquil life for the Tahitians. The flower-shaped island’s simple beauty is charmed by soft mountain shapes and surrounded by tiny motu with bright sand beaches. In the fertile valleys cutting within the island, local farmers grow watermelon, vanilla, and copra.
Is it Taha’a or Tahaa? The true Tahitian spelling of Tahaa is with a apostrophe Taha’a but it might lead to some confusion for those unfamiliar with the sometimes tongue-twisting Tahitian language. There are actually a lot of apostrophes in the Tahitian language &, as with the case of Tahaa, these words should be pronounced with a slight pause between vowels. Think of it as the similar break between “Uh-oh” in English. Nevertheless, and perhaps more widely accepted by English speakers, the spelling of Tahaa sans the apostrophe can be found frequently throughout the internet and beyond.
