Ile d'Eden, Tikehau

1.0
#6 of 6 in Things to do in Tikehau
Ile d'Eden represents a self-sustaining community living by the shores of Tikehau. The group of deeply religious Taiwanese people that manage life in this small, insular camp, believe that God has commanded them to care for the planet and to live sustainably on it. The organic farm grows figs, bananas, guavas, and other produce, which visitors can sample. Unorganized trips are not allowed, so you must come here with a tour group. Note that, due to numerous reports of the poor treatment of resident animals, the attraction is not recommended. Ile d'Eden is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Tikehau Edition.

    This step is part of the "bird island" tour. He is a former village which lived the production of Pearl and whose activity has been stopped (competition obliges). There are only 2 families who live in isolation away from it all and whose (Chinese?) religious leader passes from time to time to meditate. What is interesting is to understand how families can live "bio" of their farms and plantations away from it all and with very few resources. But this is not a trip I would recommend itself. However, I recommend the excursion of the island birds (snorkelling with Manta so you have a bit of luck and stop on an island to discover 4 bird species before lunch on a beautiful motu)

    Not much to see. Most of the remnants of a community that are only very little. Better go on the motus

    We were on the ILE of Eden during a boat tour. The setting is lovely and the intentions of these people notable, pity that now everything is in a State of decay that it hurts the heart. Founded as a production of vegetables, fruit and meat Bio and as Pearl farm, gave employment to about 50 people; Since the Pearl market went into decline, only two families living on the island. DS here comes the State of abandonment, as the task is too much trouble to so few people and many of the homes are abandoned, as well as the facilities for the production of pearls. Remains the production of fruits, vegetables and organic meat.
