Fakarava, is an untouched world where nesting birds and marine life live in harmony with the land and water. The rich ecosystem is home to rare birds, plants, and crustaceans while the dive sites are virtually undiscovered. Life along the quiet shores is equally unique with quaint villages, old coral churches, and welcoming people.
Even though Fakarava is the newest destination to welcome resort visitors among Tahiti & Her Islands, it was one of the first population centers and the ancient capital of the region. The lagoon, the second largest after Rangiroa, is rich with life below and above the surface and a prime example of nature at its finest. So pure is the environment here that Fakarava is being considered for classification as a UNESCO nature reserve for the preservation of rare species.
Life among the 400 residents is centralized around the quaint villages of Rotoava and the Tetamanu.
