The village of Fakatopatere stretches out in a narrow tongue of land between the lagoon and the ocean. Nearby, very beautiful white sand beaches and the remains of Takai marae (traditional Polynesian temple), built of raised coral blocks are main points of interest. The feathered residents of the atoll, including the endemic atoll fruitdove, will captivate bird watchers. Still the center of black pearl farming, you'll learn more about this fascinating industry as you tour a black pearl farm and visit the small village of Fakatopatere.
