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.
