Vaiama Village

Pension in Fakarava

Each of the four bungalows here is crafted from a variety of local materials. Although they're packed rather closely together, they enjoy a splendid location, just steps from a fine ribbon of beach. All have attached bathrooms with coral-gravel floors and ferns for a tropical-oasis effect. There are also two garden bungalows with lagoon views.

There’s a pontoon and good snorkelling and swimming out the front. The food is reputedly good, too. Airport transfers cost 2100 CFP return. Free kayaks.
