This is the island you dreamed of as a child when the storybook was closed. It’s as if you created your own private world and stepped barefoot into your imagination. With its white sand beaches, swaying coconut palms, colorful birds, and sparkling lagoon, Tetiaroa is a dream paradise.

Beyond its breathtaking beauty, Tetiaroa is a place of rare biodiversity and a natural sanctuary for birds and marine life. Preserving and protecting this rare habitat and its plant and animal life is critical to us. We are working on several programs not just to preserve this sanctuary, but to help restore it and help it flourish.

Tetiaroa has a special place in Polynesian history and culture.  It was the exclusive and favored retreat of Tahitian royalty for centuries.  Ancient marae (temples) built on the atoll by early Polynesians can still be found there today.  With its rich history and ethereal beauty it will always have a special place in the heart of Polynesians.
