Tikehau & Manihi

Barefoot living on far flung atolls

You’ve read about them countless times – and seen them so often in movies – that it’s almost like you know parts of America without ever having visited them. But nothing, not even a 3D movie, prepares you for the astonishing reality.

From Tahiti cruise northeast across an azure sea to the tiny, perfectly formed islands and atolls of the Tuamotu Archipelago. With names like Manihi and Tikehau.

Sail through the islets, islands and atolls of the Tuamotu Archipelago and you’ll wonder how the simple combination of endlessly warm and welcoming water, sensuously soft sand and palm trees that whisper in the balmy breeze can create such an endless variety of tropical hideaways. Each one with its own character, each with its own variation on the theme of sea, sun and sand. The Manihi Pearl Beach Resort, to mention but one possibility in this vast array of gems, offers you the essence of barefoot living on a flat coral atoll, with a white sand beach rimming a perfect lagoon. Meanwhile the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort also stands beside a crystal clear lagoon; ringed by fine sand, framed by archetypal palms. But at Tikehau you can indulge your taste for brilliant scuba diving and snorkelling. Not to mention canoeing, romantic sunset cruises and fishing.
