Early morning sailing and arrival at Tikehau, also called the Pink Sand island. Think of an island paradise: no, really think and dream about it. We bet it comes with pristine turquoise lagoons, long stretches of white-sand beaches, and is adorned with jewel-like flowers such as bougainvillea and hibiscus. Tick, tick and tick for Tikehau. Oh - but add some pink sand to your picture too. Tiny white and pink sand islets surround a lagoon and are engulfed in coconut groves and hidden alcoves. Idle time away lounging on the colourful sands or exploring the marine life which - according to legendary marine researcher Jacques Cousteau - has a higher concentration of fish than any other in French Polynesia. Today’s optional tour is to Tuherahera where most islanders live, and to a family-owned fish farm to learn about their intriguing - and successful - process. Afternoon sail to Huahine.
* Please be reminded our itineraries are influenced by weather conditions, implementing sailing restrictions when winds reach 6/7 Beaufort. The extended journey to the Tuamotu Islands, featuring anchor-adrift visits, takes into account variables like wind force, strong currents, and wave height that have to be kept into consideration due to the nature of the long sailings. In cases of unforeseen weather challenges, rest assured that we have alternative routes prepared. Adjustments to itineraries are made at the discretion of Variety Cruises, the Vessel's Captain, or in response to port authorities' decisions during such circumstances. Please be aware that these changes do not entitle passengers to refunds. We are dedicated to ensuring your timely disembarkation at the designated port, facilitating your flight connections, and providing you with peace of mind.
