Faaroa River & Motu Beach Break
Board a typical motorized Polynesian outrigger canoe and glide on deep blue waters towards the east coast of the island. You’ll travel upstream on the only navigable river in the Society Islands-the Faaroa River. Along the way, discover the lush vegetation of a tropical forest with wild hibiscus, purau trees, bamboo groves, Tahitian chestnut trees and much more. Leaving the river, you will transfer to a small motu, or island, where you will have time to enjoy the water and relax in the sun.
Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, biodegradable sunscreen and a hat. At the beach, participants must hop out of the canoe using a side ladder and wade a few yards in shallow water to reach the beach.
