The peaceful atoll island of Tikehau lies about 200 miles northeast of Tahiti. Known for its pink-sand beaches shimmering around the lagoon, it almost too breathtaking to be true!
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 transparent world of the Tikehau atoll. The volume of fish is so large that Jacques Cousteau’s research crew dubbed it “the most fish abundant Tuamotu atoll.” Divers are consistently enthralled by the amazing marine life where eagle rays, schools of barracudas and tuna, grey reef sharks, marine turtles and dolphins like to play.
Only about 500 Tahitians call Tikehau home, many of whom are fishermen whose lives revolve around the sea. Tikehau offers a life of both peace and plenty.
One of the main draws of Tikehau is the diving. Most visitors to the island are looking to disconnect.

Explore the Beautiful Nature of Tikehau (Full Day with picnic lunch) – PRIVATE TOUR
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 typical “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.
Most of your dining on Tikehau will be at your resort. The Ninamu resort includes 3 meals a day with your stay. There are a few small local snack shops located in the village of Turerahera. There is also a small store where you can purchase drinks and snacks for your room.
