Ile d'Eden, Tikehau
(1/5 based on 55+ 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.

  • This motu is occupied entirely by a sort of "common" managed by a taiwanese Christian sect who profess the return of man to the origins in the garden of eden. For this reason, in words, profess the renunciation of all kinds of technology and contact with modern reality, in favor of a symbiosis with the nature around them. In fact modern technology make abundant use, starting from electrical and thermal solar panels, machinery for cultivation, mobile phones etc. Pigs and chickens raised in cages, and giant posters of their spiritual leader everywhere. All very touristy and very fake, including guided tour and stop at their gift shop. Live much more in harmony with the nature of their island the Polynesians, rather that the components of this curious religious community. If you can avoid it.

  • See but nothing transcendent... Must visit if going with Io but I absolutely wanted to do, I stayed on my hunger.

  • In addition to the panorama of dream, must make this visit. People who live on the island of Eden give us a lesson of life by sharing with us how they work to meet their needs.
