Île aux récifs

The « ho'a » (small shallow canals) mark out lush islets.

The walk towards the oceanic reef takes us to admire an almost lunar landscape with fossilised coral mushrooms that stand like silent sentries in front of the indigo blue of the ocean.

The visual contrasts of this place are breathtaking!

Lagon Bleu

Several « motu » (islets) inside the lagoon form with the ocean reef a wonderful little lagoon, like a diamond on a ring.

Durée du trajet
« Île aux récifs »
On the lagoon side, « Île aux récifs » offers a marvelous tropical image: numerous « ho'a » (small shallow canals) border lush islands.

Accompanied by our guide, we will reach the edge of the ocean and face the « Feo »: grayish formations, sculpted by natural events.

These are fossilized coral mushrooms that rise 3-4 meters above sea level! In front of us, an almost lunar landscape, beyond the blue ocean wave that breaks over the reddish reef and behind us the typical picture of the tropics with the turquoise lagoon and the islets bordered by warm beaches and dotted with coconut palms. It's hard to put into words the beauty and the contrasts of this place.

Around 11:30 am in the shade of our « Fare pote'e » (gazebo) a delicious picnic prepared by the staff awaits us and we will resume our journey later towards the « Lagon bleu ».
« Lagon bleu »
On arrival, a dream landscape will appear to us!

We will anchor the boat, for the protection of the corals and for your comfort, and we will use another small flat-bottomed boat to reach a small islet where we will settle in the shade of a comfortable and welcoming « Fare pote'e » (gazebo).

In front of us, the mythical « Lagon bleu » of Rangiroa, splendid with its different shades of blue-turquoise which change every hour according to the light.

Bathing, swimming, either alone or or with our guide to visit other nearby islets ... the choice of total relaxation and the sweetness of doing nothing will be up to you.

Around 3:30pm, we'll be ready for the return trip.
The return

Last stop near a small islet in the lagoon; we call this site calm and protected from the currents, « L'Aquarium » because it is rich in different species of tropical fish and we can snorkel there in complete safety we provide all the equipment free of charge) .

Around 5:30pm, we will return to the departure platform; the pick-up will be there waiting to return you to the accommodation.
