Outdoor Activity
Take a trip to see the thriving colonies of seabirds at Ile Aux Oiseaux. Thousands of birds nest on this portion of shrub-covered island, making it a fantastic place for budding ornithologists, who can expect to spot great crested terns, red-footed boobies, and brown noddies. Take a tour to this small spit, just east of the main lagoon, to learn about the avian population, the significance of birds to the islands' cultural heritage, and the best places to snap photos of its feathered inhabitants. With our international travel planner, Tikehau attractions like Ile Aux Oiseaux can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
