Tikehau is a true Tahitian gem. It’s off the beaten-path and far removed from any large hotels and or tourist attractions. Instead, this oval shaped atoll is home to an abundance of fish (and a few fisherman) and stunning, bright Polynesian lagoons. Visitors to Tikehau will enjoy endless hours of exploration in the lagoon, via snorkeling, diving, or boating. Tikehau is great for a day excursion to see the dense marine life, or for extended stays if you’re looking for absolute peace, privacy, and seclusion.
For couples wishing to marry in French Polynesia, a marriage application must be completed, along with copies of passports, certified birth certificates, and single-status forms. Divorce and death decrees are also required if applicable. For additional details, check with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist.

Tikehau is home to a number of beautiful pink and white sand beaches which lead right to the clear, warm lagoon waters. Most of the beaches are unexplored, so you can enjoy the sand to yourself before you dive into the water for snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming.
Activities & Tourist Attractions
Tikehau is best explored on the water, with some of French Polynesia’s best snorkeling and diving. You can get up close to large manta rays, sea turtles, and playful bottlenose dolphins. The lagoon waters are also great for unwinding and swimming. Or, find a patch of soft pink sand and unwind under a coconut palm.
