Pension in Fakarava

This pension offers four rustic bungalows made from natural materials in a delightful location on the lagoon. They maintain a fair level of comfort but are overpriced for the simplicity of the furnishings and the lack of hot water. The food here is good, plentiful and eaten family-style. Free kayaks.

Avoid the slightly cheaper unit that shares a cold-water bathroom – it's really basic. For families, there's also a quirkily laid out bungalow on a pontoon. Airport transfers cost 2000 CFP return, and wi-fi is extra (500 CFP per hour).
