La Source, Tahiti

MACHINE TRANSLATION: 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.

MACHINE TRANSLATION: 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.
