Tikehau

Tikehau is not only blessed with beautiful pink and white sand beaches, but it also features a lagoon like no other. Due to the unique geography of the motus surrounding the lagoon, Tikehau is blessed with some of the most abundant marine life anywhere in the world.

Overview

An amazing place for diving, the underwater scenery is among some of the most spectacular you could ever see. Millions of fish live in the untouched Tikehau atoll. The volume of fish is so large that Jacques Cousteau’s crew named it “the most fish abundant Tuamotu atoll.”

Divers the world over continue to be amazed by the marine life, including: eagle rays, schools of barracudas and tuna, grey reef sharks, marine turtles and playful dolphins. Tikehau has a population of only about 500 lucky Tahitians.  Many of the residents are fishermen who have lived off the sea for generations.

Excursions

The deep, blue lagoon is one of the main allures of the island.  Naturally, it attracts divers from all over the world.  Those that do not come to dive, mainly come to disconnect and disappear for a while.  There are still some activities and excursions, once you have recharged your batteries. Here is one of our favorites:

Explore the Beautiful Nature of Tikehau (Full Day Private Tour with picnic lunch)

Go for a day boat trip to explore the main sites of interest of Tikehau. First stop next to a former pearl farm to look for the majestic Manta rays. After a 45-minute ride, you will visit the Bird island, a must-see secluded place where lovely marin birds nest.

Then a classical “paumotu” picnic lunch awaits you on a white sandy islet where you will relax; and if time allows it, you can ask to visit the Pink Sands or the Eden island, the garden of Tikehau.

French Polynesia Approves Antigen Test
The government of French Polynesia has just announced that they will accept a specific type of Antigen Test as an alternative to the RT-PCR test for entry into Tahiti. The RT-PCR test has been in place since July 2020. As mentioned in our French Polynesia COVID-19 Entry Protocols, the Antigen test must detect the "N" protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This test should prove to be more widely available, be less expensive, and produce faster results.‍

Tahiti Travel Tips
Dining in Bora Bora and the Islands of Tahiti
We are often asked about the cost of food in Bora Bora and Tahiti. Food tends to be a bit expensive in French Polynesia. It is on par with dining out in New York, Los Angeles or Honolulu. If you are trying to stick to a preferred travel budget, regardless of how much you plan to spend, the cost of dining in French Polynesia should be considered in your travel and vacation planning.

Which Polynesian Islands and Hotels to Visit
Which islands to visit and how many islands you should visit depends a lot on how long you plan to stay in French Polynesia.We typically advise clients to spend at least 3 nights on each island in their itinerary (except possibly the Island of Tahiti). Spending less than 3 nights tends to make travelers feel too rushed. After all, you are going there to at least try to relax.

The spa is beautiful, we had a great couples massage! ...the excursions are amazing & the best snorkeling channel around! Its worth every penny you spend and an experience of a life time! The sunsets are the best you will ever see! We used VENTURE TAHITI in Boca Raton, Florida to book our trip and it went off without a hitch. They did an excellent job and I highly recommend them!
