The expert staff will tell you about the process of pearl farming, then take you out into the lagoon on their canoe for the chance to spot turtles and tropical fish in the clear waters. Treat yourself to pieces of handmade pottery inspired by the abundant marine life, made and sold on site.

  • Small farm in the middle of a lagoon. Pick up from the Earth, just 5 minutes by boat. Simple explanation, beautiful décor. Beads and jewelry derivatives... Host and very friendly staff.

  • The Pearl farm is in the middle of the water, it is accessed by boat (us it was on the occasion of an excursion boat tour of the island). When we arrived, a very nice woman took us group to explain the principle of the transplant, the formation of the Pearl. It shows us what is a Pearl, a plug-in, a nucleus, the oyster, etc. The explanation does not last very long but are very clear. Then we're going in the shop to look at the different types of beads (and assemblies: necklaces, earrings, ear, bracelet, rings, etc.) as well as pottery made from algae of the lagoons (where their beautiful blue color). Those who want to buy, this is the time. But I find that the prices are quite high (compared to some jewellers, or stand on the market of Papeete, for example). Then out of the tiny shop and wait a while the rest of the group back to leave by boat. In the meantime it little rest on the Nice bench or swing or along the platform... the view is really beautiful. The visit is very good for those who had never had an explanation on the training of the pearls, but I found that it was missing some things. We explained above all the principle of the registry but you can't see the rest of the process (or very succinctly) it's a shame.
