(4.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Relax on the golden shores or explore the waters for exotic species at Tereia Beach. The fine-grain sand, shade of the coconut trees, and shallowness of the blue lagoon draw snorkelers, swimmers, and sunbathers alike. The abundant marine life is easily visible in the clear, shallow water, providing great opportunities to spot blacktip sharks, octopuses, and rays. Even those who shy away from swimming in chilly seas should dip their toes into the warm waters here.

  • A place of white sand lined with coconut trees, a turquoise lagoon and across a motu which can be reached on foot. After the snack at Mimi, the lagoon is deeper and more conducive to swimming.

  • We stayed at the residence adjacent to the most beautiful beach of the island having way to enjoy it fully. White sand and black volcanic rocks distinguish this corner of paradise. From here you can make the crossing on foot to motu facing because water is always low and I highly recommend it because there you will find a pristine beach full of shells and corals. I recommend everyone to get there by bike because it is one of the most beautiful beaches we saw in Polynesia:-)

  • One of the most beautiful beaches of Polynesia, to be enjoyed at sunset. The shallow water allows you, if you will, to walk up to motu in front
