Tahaa French Polynesia. Amid some of the world’s most pristine islands in French Polynesia floats Tahaa (“Tah-ah-ah”), a picturesque speck in the Society Islands archipelago. A population of only 5,220 calls this 33-square-mile island home, where most income comes from tourism, pearl farming, fishing, and vanilla plantations. Supplying more of an untouched Polynesian experience compared to neighboring Bora Bora—with fewer visitors, fewer resorts, and less commercialization.
