A 10-minute bike ride will take you to Tipta Path, a 200-meter wide waterway created in between corals, midway between Tipta Village and Apator Village, where the hotel is located. The ocean and the lagoon intersect at this waterway, creating a complicated current, attracting various sea creatures in search of rich plankton. This makes Tipta Path one of the world's best diving spots where encounters with large sea creatures such as the manta ray, Napoleon Fish and hammerhead sharks are almost guaranteed. Another must see spectacle at Tipta Path is the wild dolphins jumping out of the water - watch them playing with the waves in the strong evening current.
Spend your day on an excursion to enjoy the expansive lagoon - 200km in perimeter - of Rangiroa coral in its entirety.
The most popular destination is the breathtaking Blue Lagoon, a one-hour boat ride from Rangiroa Island. Motu, a small island, and its palm trees surround the shallow ocean, giving it an illusion of a small lagoon within a lagoon. Other excursion destinations include the Pink Sand Beach with salmon pink sand reef, Reef Island with coral fossils and tide pool – choose from a range of activities to get closer to the amazing nature of Rangiroa.
