The pearl farm


The pearl farm Gauguin's Pearl is located on the atoll of Rangiroa, a low island famous for its lagoon and its great diving spots. As part of the Tuamotu Archipelago, which consists almost entirely of atolls, about 300 km from Tahiti, Rangiroa is also the most famous island in the north-west of the archipelago. Located in the middle of the Motu Avatoru, leads to the pearl farm by the only road on the island or by the lagoon. In operation for over fifteen years and holding a licence of over 400 hectares on the lagoon, this pearl farm is one of the largest cultivating black pearls in Polynesia.
