Tikehau Atoll

About 200 miles north by northeast of the main French Polynesia island of Tahiti lies the Tikehau Atoll, a spectacular crown of coral and sand 16 miles long and 14 miles wide. The atoll is a thin white line of coral, sand and palm tree, no more than half a mile wide, but it encircles a lagoon of pristine, otherworldly beauty – a place Jacques Cousteau visited in 1987 and found a greater variety of fish species than any other location in French Polynesia.


Ninamu Resort

Hidden away on a private island in the southwest corner of the atoll, Ninamu (Nee-Nah-Moo) Resort is a luxury minded outdoor enthusiasts’ retreat. We cater to surfers, divers, fishermen, kite surfers, paddle boarders or anyone who loves cruising in tropical waters that are bursting with life and energy. Everyone should experience a pristine atoll in the middle of the South Pacific once in their life.
