La Source, Tahiti

The site owes its name to a fresh water source emerging from the depths of the ocean. It emerges 5-6 metres below the surface and is therefore easily visible thanks to the column of water bubbles that escape from it.

This site is very fishy and you can meet sharks but above all it is a haven of peace for turtles that come to sleep in the corals.
