Fodor's Expert Review Tiputa

Rangiroa Town/Village

Rangiroa's other little settlement can be reached by a regular ferry service (called a taxi boat) from Ohotu wharf. Tiputa's well kept, with a few houses enclosed by coral fences, St. Michael's Catholic church, and a little school. A great way to explore the village is by bike, which you can take on the ferry for a small fee (400 CFP return; 200 CFP bicycles, 500 CFP scooters).
