Getting There & Around

Air Tahiti flies between Rurutu and Tahiti (23,600 CFP, 1½ hours, three to five flights weekly), Tubuai (13,000 CFP, 40 minutes, once or twice weekly), and Rimatara (10,800 CFP, once weekly, 35 minutes). For Raivavae, you'll need to change on Tubuai.

If you want to combine several islands, it's cheaper to buy an 'Australs Pass', or you can also add an 'Australs extension', which includes Rurutu, Rimatara, Raivavae and Tubuai to some Air Tahiti passes.

The cargo ship Tuhaa Pae IV makes two to three trips a month between Pape'ete and Rurutu.

If you’ve booked accommodation you’ll be picked up at the airport. The best way to get around the island is to take a tour.
