The Coral Gardens located adjacent to the resort are exceptional – it was only my 2nd snorkeling opportunity ever and I’m hooked! Many clients want to snorkel without the need to pay for an excursion. This is why it is so great to have access to fantastic snorkeling. With tourism returning to Tahiti, so too are activities and excursions. When you stand up paddle boarding or kayaking, or snorkeling, you won’t need to wear a mask. While you jet ski across an aqua blue lagoon, Mt Otemanu rises like a Greek Adonis. The blanket of rainforest falls upon a sugar-white sand beach.
