Point Venus, Tahiti
Categories: Geologic Formations, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots, Nature & Parks
Combine sunbathing with a bit of Tahitian culture and history at Point Venus, a public black-sand beach. Said to be the spot from which Captain Cook watched the planet Venus cross in front of the sun, the beach includes a monument commemorating the explorer, as well as a lighthouse designed by the father of "Treasure Island" author Robert Louis Stevenson. Take a dip in the shallow waters and gaze across the sea at the island of Moorea. With ample shade, the site also presents a great opportunity for a picnic.

As a fan of the movie the mutiny on the bounty this is a mandatory place to visit when in Tahiti. It is nice to see it actually exists and lean of the time Capt. Bligh had spent there.
