Overview Of The Port Of Rangiroa

About Rangiroa
Rangiroa is the largest atoll in the Tuamotus in French Polynesia. It is part of the Palliser group and is located in the Pacific Ocean.

As there is limited transport options here, it may be best to book a ship's organised excursion.

Blue Lagoon is an hour from Avatoru by boat. Visitors can swim and snorkel in the natural pool and there is a white sand beach fringed with coconut trees to enjoy.

If you have limited time, why not visit the Green Lagoon, which is smaller and is in the middle of a residential area, but is only 5 minutes by water taxi from Avatoru.

Another attraction here is Sables Roses pink beach near Motu Vahituri, which is a 2 hour boat ride from Avatoru.

Visit a pearl farm, Rangiroa is known for it's high quality black pearls, Gauguin's Pearls is one of the largest black pearl farms in French Polynesia and is located on Motu Avatoru.

Go on a dolphin watch trip and see wild bottlenose dolphins.

Local guides are available at the pier if you want to experience some deep sea fishing.

Dining ranges from traditional French and Polynesian dishes to pizza and international options.

'Poisson cru' (raw fish and diced vegetables marinated with lime juice and soaked in coconut milk) is the national dish. Other popular choices include 'chevrettes' (freshwater shrimp) and 'poe' (a sweet banana pudding).
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships anchor inside Rangiroa's interior lagoon, often at Tiputa Pass and passengers are tendered ashore.

There is not many facilities at either Avatoru or Tiputa, the two towns but both offer island handicrafts for sale.

Car hire is available near the pier.

There are limited taxis at the pier.

A mini-bus drives between Tiputa and Avatoru a few times a day (no set schedule).
