About Tahiti

Tahiti is the largest island in French Polynesia. It is a volcanic island with black stone beaches along its coast, which are suitable for surfing and sailing. Deep-sea fishing is also very popular. Volcanic ash has created fertile soil and there are tropical fruits everywhere. The tombs of the indigenous chiefs are the most spectacular historical sites. The tombs are located on Point Venus. Nearby there is a monument to the landing of the European explorers and an abandoned lighthouse. The Museum of Tahiti and the Islands displays the cultural background and traditional customs of Polynesia. There is also the Paul Gauguin Museum, which was built to commemorate the famous 19th century Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin.

Snorkeling/Diving
Dolphin Watching
Te Kokōta is located within the Tuamotus Archipelago and looks like a swimming whale. The atoll surrounds a lagoon, which is like a huge inner sea. The surrounding dry land encircles the lake the way a small island is encircled by water. If visitors come here to dive, they will have the opportunity to see tiger sharks, hammerhead sharks, dolphins, turtles and eagle rays. One of the important tourist attractions here is a tour of the lagoon. Te Kokōta is also a famous atoll. One of the diving destinations visitors like to explore is Les Sables Roses, which is a pink sandbar in the southeastern part of the atoll.

Sea carnival, Tahiti Island Hawa Festival activities, the big Han shot a coconut!
Tahiti Islands is the French Polynesian Windward Islands, which is simply the French island. It is composed of a total of 118 islands, of which Tahiti Island is the most lively in the annual Hawa Festival. It is the most important day on the island every year. On this day, visitors from all over the world come here to check in.
Javelin shoots the coconut game. This game is the most famous game except the song and dance competition and the anti-food competition. Most of the participants are mainly boys. At least I didnt see the girls at the scene.
I believe that everyone is no stranger to the javelin project, but for the "Javelin Shooting Coconut" contest, it should be the same expression as me. It must be quite doubtful: What is this operation? Shooting coconut with a javelin This is what a ghost game.
I thought it was the operation of shooting a coconut tree with a javelin and shooting the coconut. But when I arrived at the game, I found out that it was a coconut rack that was 9.5 meters high, and then a lot of people around it. Javelin went to tie it. Hey, are you really not thinking about how it feels? This coconut is too bad!
The rule of the game is to tie the coconut to a height of 9.5 meters, then the person must occupy at least 22 meters away from him, and then use the javelin to project under the command of the referee. Originally I started. I thought it would be hard to hit the coconut in such a high place. The result is 22 meters away. Are you sure that this is a sports competition or a luck game?
But later I learned that a person has 10 javelin guns, that is to say, there are 10 chances. In the end, it is to see who hits a lot. After the end of the first round, I was surprised to find that such a small coconut top. I have already got more than 10 shots! Oh, this is really a game of strength!
Borrowed a javelin to try, the result, even 22 meters can not be reached, and sure enough, this game is not suitable for me ~
