Best Beaches in Rangiroa

Laze the day away on one of Rangiroa’s gorgeous beaches and idyllic motus, such as…

Les Sables Rose Beach, Rangiroa

Les Sables Rose

(The Pink Sands) – Unwind on one of French Polynesia's most beautiful beaches, a stunning pink-sand beach located in the southeast corner of Rangiroa; easily reached on a two-hour boat trip across the turquoise lagoon.

Relax on the beach, go for a swim and enjoy a picnic on a day excursion to this isolated atoll.

Note: The pink sand is a result of eroded coral and foraminiferal deposits (the pulverized red shells of tiny sea creatures) that sparkle in the sunlight.

The Blue Lagoon, Rangiroa

Lagon Bleu

(Blue Lagoon) – Swim and snorkel in this sensational blue lagoon, a shallow sandy pool full of colourful corals teeming with fish and fringed by gorgeous white-sand beaches and groves of swaying coconut palms.

To reach the lagoon, you need to walk across a coral scattered seabed (reef shoes required) and over the motu; following an hour’s boat ride from Avatoru.
