Sunset Over the Mysterious Bali Hai

“I wish I could tell you about the South Pacific,” James Michener wrote in “Tales of the South Pacific.” “The way it actually was. The endless ocean. The infinite specks of coral we called islands. Coconut palms nodding gracefully toward the ocean. Reefs upon which waves broke into spray, and inner lagoons, lovely beyond description.”

And here, in our last sunset in French Polynesia’s Society Islands, we are standing upon the island of Tahiti and looking out at James Michener’s mysterious Bali Hai, on the island of Moorea.

Polynesian legend describes the panorama of volcanic ridges as the second dorsal fin of the fish that became the island of Tahiti. And according to the Tahitian Tourism Board, these very pinnacles later inspired the mythical “Bali Hai” that was based on James Michener’s book, Tales of the South Pacific.

Lovely beyond description.  That really does about sum it up.  We’ve had the opportunity to visit quite a few of the world’s most beautiful islands, and the islands of Bora Bora and Moorea have completely captured our hearts.

They really are lovely  beyond description, and if you can, you really must give them a visit.
