Point Venus is Tahiti’s northernmost extremity and is where Captain James Cook observed the transit of the planet Venus in 1769. Today it is a popular place for picnics on a black-sand beach that also features some shade trees and lawn. The spot is also home to a tall white lighthouse built in 1868, a snack bar and souvenir shops.
