Tuamotu/Rangiroa: Avatoru

Avatoru is the main town on the Rangiroa atoll, stretch between the two passes – Tiputa and Avatoru. It’s a laid-back village with a couple beautiful churches and views of the passes. Anywhere you go, you are just steps away from the ocean – the open ocean and fringe reef on one side and the lagoon and calm blue waters with a reef on the other. Biking is the best way of exploring around.
