Fodor's Review

These three towns stretching from around PK10 to PK25 are more of interest for their black-sand beaches and the natural wonders near them: look out for the turnoff into the Papenoo Valley (at around PK 17) and the Arahoho Blowhole and the Three Waterfalls. The most notable man-made attraction is the lighthouse at Pointe Vénus, in Mahina. It overlooks Matavai Bay.
