Discover the Fauna and Flora of Tikehau

Remarkably well-tended coconut groves give it that striking greenness on arrival by plane.

On the motu, the myriad birdlife is also well worth a visit. Here you can discover birds such as the Long-billed Warbler, the Tuamotu Ptilope, the Lori Nonnette (a rare species also known as the Tahitian Blue Lori), Crested Terns, Red-footed Boobies and Ariel Frigates...

The island has a single pass, called Tuheiava, which is located in the north-west and houses the fishing village. On either side of the pass lie the famous fish farms, and at its exit is a renowned surfing site.
