Activities & Attractions
Tikehau is best explored on the water, with some of French Polynesia’s best snorkeling and diving. You can get up close to large manta rays, sea turtles, and playful bottlenose dolphins. The lagoon waters are also great for unwinding and swimming. Or, find a patch of soft pink sand and unwind under a coconut palm.
