Motu Aito Paradise

Pension in Fakarava

The motu is really nothing special (and there’s not even a beach), but the owners have built such beautiful coconut-thatch structures and planted enough flowers that they’ve transformed the land into something appealing. Prices are for a three-night minimum stay and include daily excursions. Airport transfers (by car and by boat) may take up to 1½ hours (be prepared to get wet if it’s raining) and cost 3000 CFP.

There’s excellent snorkelling just offshore. Cash only. No internet access.
