“One of the nicest beach in Tahiti”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

You can walk along this beach for hours, just beware of the dogs who act like they own the place. They will not bother you if you stay calm and walk slowly. The sunsets are just amazing, and in the early morning, you will walk on carpets of fragants flowers.

“It's a beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

If you are looking for a white or black sand beach that stretches on along deserted coast this isn't the beach for you. This is a nice public beach 18 km from downtown in a resdiential area with a nice grassy area for the kids to play on and pebblely (sp?) beach and the water is great. It is clean and well kept and a nice place to hang out for the day. It was almost empty while i was there.

“So so beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

The beaches on the east coast are much better. The beach at Papenoo is fun - black sand and clear water. We also like Tautira at Tahiti Iti.

“Time to Relax - known as PK18”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

This is a public beach not far from the main town. Known also as PK18. Basically means 18 kms from town and is on the west side of the island. There is a huge grassed area for relaxing under the shade of a tree or playing ball games. There are also outdoor showers and toilets.

It is not the beautiful white sandy beaches you see, a bit pebbly but the water is clear and some reasonable snorkelling off the beach.

There was no food available when we visited, so make sure you pack your lunch. Great spot for a picnic by the sea.
