Photos of Tahanea

We have so many pictures of lovely Tahanea so we decided to split up the gallery in 3 parts. Two are already online, the third one on underwater life will follow soon.

Tahanea is the most pristine atoll we've found so far. We love its wildlife and beauty and stayed six weeks in October and November 2016.

Tahanea - Birds of the Tuamotus

Seabirds are threatened by destruction of their habitat (they need shrubs and leaf trees, not coconut plantations), introduction of predatory species (rats, cats, etc.) and human hunters. Tahanea is one of the atolls where they can still breed undisturbed on a handful of motus on the southern side of the lagoon.
