Even in Papeete (Tahiti), very few businesses or individuals have a well defined geographical address with a street number and name. Polynesians use some major points of interest as a referral and then spot the address.
In larger islands like Tahiti, Moorea, locals use 3 parameters to indicate an address
- PK that stands for Point kilometer + a number
- Seaside or mountainside compared with the road
- West or East coast
ex : PK 18.5 / mountain side – West coast
This address would be located on the west coast at 15 kilometers away from downtown Papeete on the mountain side.
