Avatoru

4.7
Islands · Swim with Dolphins · Scuba & Snorkeling
The main draw to Avatoru is its stunning location at the northern end of Rangiroa's vast, turquoise coral lagoon. With several resorts nearby, this small town serves primarily as a stepping stone, or a place to charter a boat to take you to an uninhabited island or underwater paradise. Beyond this, the town itself does not offer much in the way of attractions. In the build up to your vacation in Avatoru, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our French Polynesia trip itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Avatoru

There are two resorts on Rangiroa, both offering high-end luxury accommodations. For a more affordable vacation, try one of several family-run pensions (boarding houses), strung along the islets to the east of Avatoru. Wherever you stay on Rangiroa, you will be in immediate proximity to the idyllic lagoon.
