This tiny, pristine atoll sits 36 miles north of the island of Tahiti, in the Windward Islands, part of the Society Island archipelago. Only accessible by a 20 minute Air Tetiaroa private flight from Tahiti, Tetiaroa is an idyllic island escape at its best! Just 4.5 miles wide, consisting of 12 motus (islets) and surrounded by a protective coral reef, this enchanted atoll is home to one of French Polynesia's only protected bird sanctuaries as well as an intact and healthy marine environment - and from July 2014, it will also be home to an exclusive 35 villa luxury hideaway; The Brando.
The 12 motus epitomise the quintessential tropical paradise: swaying coconut palms, white-sand beaches and coral reefs brimming with multi-coloured fish.
Tetiaroa has long been a privileged retreat - first for Tahitian royalty, then privately-owned by the late Marlon Brando after he fell in love with this exquisite atoll whilst filming Mutiny on the Bounty in 1962.
