Top attractions on Rangiroa

Rangiroa offers a choice of must-see attractions for inquisitive couples celebrating a romantic honeymoon getaway, including the following. . .

L'ile Aux Recifs
Wearing reef shoes, explore the fascinating raised feo (coral outcrops), some five to six meters above the lagoon.
  Renowned for its fossilised razor-sharp coral formations created by erosion, the 9m-long ‘isle of reefs’ is considered one of Rangi’s best lagoon excursions, easily reached on a one-hour boat ride from Avatoru.
  Swim or snorkel pools set between coral outcrops and relax with a picnic on one of the nearby motus.

Dolphin watching
For some great free entertainment, head to the public park at the western side of Tiputa Pass and watch cavorting dolphins leap high above the waves – the best time for this entertaining sight is during the late afternoon.
  Alternatively, sign up for a dolphin-watching cruise, easily arranged from any of Rangiroa's hotels and resorts.

Gauguin's Pearl Farm
Learn about the long and laborious process of cultivating Tahitian black pearls on a guided tour of this fascinating pearl farm, which is located close to the airport.
  Learn about the Pinctada margaritifera or black-lipped oyster, and watch as a technician inserts a nucleus (a small shell bead) into the oyster to begin the pearl growing process. Then browse for a unique honeymoon gift at the farm’s shop.
