Tuamotu Archipelago Sights

Avatoru

Updated 06/22/2011

Fodor's Review

Rangiroa's capital is a small village on Avatoru Pass with two churches (Catholic and Mormon) fashioned from coral, a town hall, post office, banks, and a couple of general stores. It has an ideal location with access to the lagoon, the ocean's surf beach, and the pass's good diving spot. To experience a true slice of island life, turn up at 10 am on Sunday for one of the church services.
