The Edges and the Heart of Tahiti
Both the main island of Tahiti and the outlying Islands of Tahiti have proved to be among the most magical destinations in the world. On his latest trip there, ISLANDS' Ty Sawyer used the main island as a springboard to explore the edges of Tahiti and, in turn, discover the true heart of this South Pacific paradise.
Ty visited the islands of Fakarava, Huahine and Nuku Hiva for his ISLANDS feature article "From the Edge." He writes: "For years, Tahiti has inspired me, grounded me, romanced me, sent me on wild adventures and fascinated me. It's a place that rattles my soul with its beauty & lets me hear the silence. So here I am, immersed in the most beautiful water on the planet. In the quiet twilight, I close my eyes and slip under the water." Read the full story.
