Tahiti Tourism North America announces specials to the magical islands of Tahiti including Bora Bora, Moorea and Huahine.
An eight-hour flight from Los Angeles and seemingly a world away, the islands of Tahiti offer a romantic escape to the South Pacific.
A seven-night package to Tahiti and Moorea can be had from U.S. $1,699 per person.
A seven-night deluxe Bora Bora vacation begins at $2,899.
Tahiti is halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America and in the same time zone as Hawaiii.
There are a total of 118 islands and atolls that comprise the South Pacific country.
Tahitiís varied landscape ranges from just-above sea level coral atolls to volcanic mountain peaks.
Tahiti is renowned for warm waters, white sand beaches, stunning turquoise lagoons, lush green hills and abundant flowering plants.
