In the 1820s, the entire population of Tahiti converted to Protestantism. Duperrey, who berthed in Tahiti in May 1823, attests to the change in Tahitian society in a letter dated 15 May 1823: "The missionaries of the Royal Society of London have totally changed the morals and customs of the inhabitants. Idolatry no longer exists among them, and they generally profess the Christian religion. The women no longer come aboard the vessel, and even when we meet them on land they are extremely reserved. (...) The bloody wars that these people used to carry out and human sacrifices have no longer taken place since 1816."[29]

The heart and soul of the South Pacific, Tahiti is the largest in a chain of islands that make up French Polynesia. The name can either refer to the main island or the entire destination. Commonly referred to as The Islands of Tahiti, French Polynesia is a collection of 118 islands and atolls scattered across an impressive nautical surface area the size of Western Europe. Still, these tiny islands—many of which remain uninhabited—make up a total landmass of only 1,600 square miles (4,100 sq. km).

The first European to have visited Tahiti according to existing records was lieutenant Samuel Wallis, who was circumnavigating the globe in HMS Dolphin,[16] sighting the island on 18 June 1767,[17] and eventually harbouring in Matavai Bay. This bay was situated on the territory of the chiefdom of Pare-Arue, governed by Tu (Tu-nui-e-a'a-i-te-Atua) and his regent Tutaha, and the chiefdom of Ha'apape, governed by Amo and his wife "Oberea" (Purea). Wallis named the island King George's Island. The first contacts were difficult, since on the 24 and 26 June 1767,[18] Tahitian warriors in canoes showed aggression towards the British, hurling stones from their slings. In retaliation, the British sailors opened fire on the warriors in the canoes and on the hills. In reaction to this powerful counter-attack, the Tahitians laid down peace offerings for the British.[18] Following this episode, Samuel Wallis was able to establish cordial relations with the female chieftain "Oberea " (Purea) and remained on the island until 27 July 1767.[11]:45–84,104,135

Other popular activities include snorkeling, Jet Skiing and surfing. Experienced surfers should visit the famed Teahupo'o and bear witness to one of the world's most intense waves. Beginners can surf or take lessons at some of the more mellow beaches around the island. You can also enjoy a day of golfing at the Olivier Bréaud Golf Course, one of only two courses in French Polynesia.  
The Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa is centrally located on a sandy beach between Moorea's two iconic bays. This northern placement creates the perfect setting to admire both the sunrise to the east and the sunset to the west from the comfort of your own overwater bungalow. The resort is also easily accessible by scenic drive from the airport or ferry dock, taking ten or fifteen minutes respectively.
Explore the islands of Tahiti like never before. Begin your journey in Tahiti with a 4x4 Jeep safari through the rugged island interior. From there, head to Moorea where you will enjoy a guided ATV tour of the island, a jet ski tour of the lagoon and a snorkeling and ray feeding excursion. End your island adventure in Bora Bora where you will push your limits with either waterskiing or wakeboarding, an introductory PADI dive and a leisurely paddleboard tour of the glistening lagoon. 
Tahitian cultures included an oral tradition that involved the mythology of gods, such as 'Oro and beliefs, as well as ancient traditions such as tattooing and navigation. The annual Heivā Festival in July is a celebration of traditional culture, dance, music and sports including a long distance race between the islands of French Polynesia, in modern outrigger canoes (va'a).
The Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort & Spa is beautiful and isolated on its own island that feels just like paradise. The luxurious underwater bungalows are large and offer nice views of the fish swimming down below. The garden villas are also good for honeymooning couples. Although the resort is large, it never feels crowded so you can spend plenty of one-on-one time with each other. The guest rooms have gardens views of the tropical landscape, private terraces, elegant marble bathrooms, and king canopy beds. The suites offer views of the lagoon and private water-side balconies along with the other amenities. Excellent dining options include Polynesian and Mediterranean specialties at Iriatai Restaurant and Upa Restaurant & Bar, as well as exotic cocktails at Ta Ie Bar.
Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa is an elegant resort and a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux Collection. Located thirty minutes by boat from the island of Raiatea, this luxury hotel is situated on a small, private islet with spectacular views of Taha'a and Bora Bora and easy access to an extraordinary coral garden. Each overwater bungalow features a large deck with privacy enclosure, while the beach villas feature their own secluded courtyard with plunge pools hidden behind rock walls.
This is a very good question. If you start searching for flights to Bora Bora you might find that there are no results. There are no direct flights to Bora Bora and there is only 1 airline that offers flights to the island. To reach Bora Bora, you’ll have to fly into Fa’a’ā International Airport (PPT) and then take an Air Tahiti flight to Bora Bora Airport (BOB). The flight from PPT to BOB is only 50 minutes in duration and is hands down the most beautiful flight we have ever been on. Couple’s Coordinates insider tip…sit on the left side of the plane on your way there from PPT for the most spectacular views, and the right side as you leave to return to PPT. You’ll be pleasantly surprised upon arrival as there are no cars on the outer islands of Bora Bora and the only form of transportation from the airport to your resort will be a boat. The airport is literally waterfront.

Bora Bora is one of the most beautiful and romantic islands on the planet. Actually it’s not really an island, but an atoll - a formation of small coral islets (or “motus”) that encircle a lagoon. These small islets are separated from each other by channels leading from the ocean into the lagoon. Most of the luxury Bora Bora resorts are located on their own islets away from the outside world, so having all your meals included in the package does make a lot of sense.
In 1843, the Queen's Protestant advisor, Pritchard, persuaded her to display the Tahitian flag in place of the flag of the Protectorate.[33] By way of reprisal, Admiral Dupetit-Thouars announced the annexation of the Kingdom of Pōmare on 6 November 1843 and set up the governor Armand Joseph Bruat there as the chief of the new colony. He threw Pritchard into prison, and later sent him back to Britain. The annexation caused the Queen to be exiled to the Leeward Islands, and after a period of troubles, a real Franco-Tahitian war began in March 1844. News of Tahiti reached Europe in early 1844. The French statesman François Guizot, supported by King Louis-Philippe of France, had denounced annexation of the island.
