    Breeding and cultivation of oysters for the production of the famous black pearls (coloured) typical and unique of the Polynesian Islands. We pick you up at the hotel and at fixed hours there is a detailed explanation (also in life) of various processes that lead to the extraction of pearls. Finished the tour there is a large single bead shop or already assembled in various ways. Excellent quality and good prices. If you are in Rangiroa is a visit not to be missed.
