Although the name "Tahiti" is commonly used to describe the entire destination, it is actually one of the many islands in French Polynesia. Often referred to as "Tahiti and her Islands", French Polynesia is a collection of 118 islands and atolls scattered across 1.5 million square miles of the South Pacific. Amazingly enough, these tiny islands, many of which remain uninhabited, make up a total landmass of only 1,500 square miles.
