Back in Tahiti we first had to get used to driving on the right side of the road again to get to our beautiful accommodation on the southern tip of Tahiti Iti (“little Tahiti”) – the small south east corner of Tahiti – where we would be staying the next two nights at the Vanira Lodge … the cutest little place we have seen on our trip so far.
Whoever thought that Hobbiton from “the Lord of the Rings” was filmed in New Zealand might want to take a second look at this lodge. Our cottage looked and felt like a life size hobbit house and was beautifully built using natural materials wherever they could. It even including its own two pets: the gecko you see in the picture below and a rat who tried to munch our breakfast baguette in the middle of the night before we were able to chase it out again 🙂
Our excursion to the east side of Tahiti Iti brought us to this stunning black sand beach:
Two days haven’t been nearly enough time for Tahiti and we sincerely hope to come here again some day and explore the jungle centre and main island as well.
