  • A black sand beach that has great waves for surfing. It has good car parking and toilet facilities. Not much other infrastructure around, but worth a visit

  • Awesome beach, the sand is very hot because it’s black. but it was a great time watching the surfers. Worth checking it out!!!!Beach also has a bar and shower area.
  • Fantastic beach. Ample parking, bathrooms, a little snack shop, surfing, shade, hot black sand
  • Don't expect the white sand beaches you might think French Polynesia is famous for; Tahiti has primarily volcanic black sand beaches and they are great. This is a wonderful beach to enjoy a sunset, and watch all the surfers (there are some really talented locals). They also surf way into the night, no idea how they can see. There are usually quite a few people here, but it's a huge beach so it's easy to spread out. Plenty of parking, and there are areas to BBQ away from the beach as well, along with a snackbar.
  • One of the few places to surf on the beach without having to take a boat out of the lagoon. There is an outside wave you can paddle to also. Warm blue water cobblestone and black sand beach.
  • Beautiful beach with an estuary and a famous surf spot. Diverse with a lot to do I’d you walk the entire beach - You could never get bored here
