Ile d'Eden, Tikehau
(1/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Amazing to see what can grow on a Motu but does not apply to as many cross the lagoon...

  • ... If you want to see how 2 Chinese families with small children can be self-sufficient on a small island in the middle of the Pacific... Vegetables, fruits, chicken, pork, and fish from the ocean... they produce or fish which is necessary and live in autarky. They improve the Earth (originally very poor) with their compost and animal feces. They sell their vanilla and some pareos and memories from the conversation we had with the young woman who gave us the tour of the property, the families remain 2 years on the island, then come back to civilization. The welcome is friendly and clear explanations. Attention, provide the repellent, even in the day! Finally there is need to have "to have full cabinets", if one decides to live with nature... Good lesson in humility. This visit is free.
