Tikehau is home to one village and an amazing natural lagoon, where marine life is prolific. For those in search of a relaxing time, this is an ideal place to visit.

Picture-perfect, the island is graced with an oval crown of pink sand beaches and an azure lagoon teeming and famous for its enormous fish population.

Although dive sites are limited, divers of all abilities will enjoy the Old Pearl Farm, a manta cleaning station in the lagoon at only 15 metres deep. An incredible encounter for all! Other dive sites are dotted along the wall on the outside of the lagoon as well as in the pass itself. It's here you can expect to encounter eagle rays, barracuda, walls of grey reef shark and plenty of snapper hiding amongst the holes and crevices.
