Tetamanu

Village in Fakarava

A handful of inhabitants also live in Tetamanu village, a tiny settlement on the edge of Tumakohua Pass, which is as backwater as backwater gets (despite the growing numbers of divers who stay in the nearby pensions). It has a cute coral chapel built in the 19th century and an old graveyard with coral tombstones.

Tetamanu is accessible by private boat only or during a lagoon excursion.
