Fakarava (FAV) Hotels
Whether you’re travelling to Fakarava to explore this French Polynesian atoll’s other-worldly dive spots, or just after some seriously relaxing, get-away-from-it-all downtime, Fakarava Airport (FAV) provides a convenient entry point to this slice of South Seas heaven. The rustic, hut-like airport building is so small you’ll never have to wait long while transiting through.Hotels in
As the atoll’s so sparsely developed, there's not a wide range of hotels near Fakarava Airport. The accommodation available does make the very best of the glowingly tropical surroundings, though, with easy access to the smooth sands, outdoor tables shaded by lazy palms, and poolside bars serving up cooling fruity cocktails. Guestrooms typically feature balconies with views of the bright blue waters.Where to stay
The atoll’s main community of Rotoava is just a 10-minute drive from Fakarava Airport, so you won’t have to head far to find a dreamy place to unwind and unpack your bags. Elsewhere you'll wander swathes of pink and white sandy beach, palm tree-laden streets, and translucent waters just begging to be explored. This is an island for daydreaming in the sun, or snorkeling, diving and splashing around in the Pacific Ocean.How to get to Fakarava (FAV)
