Is the Tuamotu clematis for us and if so, which? HOwever: I would also consider the Havaiki Pearl Farm in Fakarava (where you can use their kayaks). It is possible to take a kayak to go snorkelling in other places, you can also go by bike, the town is very nice and the locals are very nice, a kind of bigger Tikehau.
At Rangiroa we like Tevahine Dream, our favourite place. Tevahine (who has and operates Tevahine with his wife) will take you to where you want to go around Rangiroa, there are also canoes you can use, and angling is okay, although obviously it will not be ocean angling from the water.
It' a small guesthouse, with 5 3 bungalow on the sea and 2 gardens. They' re also one of a kind bungalow he built, just like Ninamu. We' re ending our visit to Havaiki. On Rangiroa there is more to discover during the days, just because it is a little bigger than Tikehau.
The Fakarave lies between Tikehau and Rangiroa. TIkehau is that you can go alone to many different motos, either by canoe or even on foot (through the HOA's/channels) and really be on your own little isle for a whole days if you want.
Tevahine's dinner is great, but it really is in Havaiki Pearl. Havaiki has AC which can be beautiful when it's warm. In Tevahine, the dishes are at a familiar dinner and at a large group. Breakfast was really great there.
They have very beautiful minicoolers (not only the coolers but also the real refrigerators) and although they are not air-conditioned, we were never heated because they are so well made. Northbert is a great welcoming and you will always be a part of his home during your sojourn.
As in Tevahine, we could never have finished the food, or rather, we could never have the desserts that are served every evening. It is also a bead ranch and at the end of your visit they will take you on a trip (if you want) to get some beads and then they will do a bead raffle.
And I also liked Ninamu and the Pearl (on Tikehau). Snorkelling off Ninamu was great for us, many dark spots and stingrays. The meal was good and all dishes were inclusive, although the servings were smaller than in Tevahine or Havaiki. We used to love the above-water suites when we were there.
The Bora Bora, Moorea, Huahine, Tahaa are beautiful isles. Hua huahine and tahaa will probably be less of a tourist destination than Moorea or Bora Bora. After all, if you have never remained overseas before, it is a marvellous experiment, which I am very happy that we decided at the beginning. I' ve been hearing marvelous things about this place, although I have no grievances about Le Tahaa.
Just like at Kia Ora in Rangiroa (where we were before) we like smaller, much smaller ones. Polynesia is really beautiful and a great option.
