Plage de Taharuu

Beach in South Coast

Everybody loves Plage de Taharuu – locals taking the kids for a swim, tourists on day trips from Pape’ete and surfers catching some great waves. This gently curving black-sand beach is long, broad and fairly protected. It usually has some good swimming conditions. There’s also a little snack eatery right on the beach if you get peckish.
