It's a popular spot with locals being on a black sand promontory and today was no exception being a national holiday. It's also a base for local outrigger canoe racing, the single hulls being for fishing and local transport, whereas the double hulls were used for inter-island transport and war!
After stopping off at the Arahoho blowhole we continued to the 300 feet high Faarumai waterfalls. A breathtaking cascade of water tumbling down the cliff face. It's over 300 feet tall and is the tallest in Tahiti and seemed very tall but in reality is only a tenth of the height of the tallest waterfall in the world.
We're keeping our fingers crossed that we can leave on Friday. We're ready for some white sand beaches again!
