This beach is beautiful. Quiet with great views over the lagoon. The sand is perfectly white and there is a deep channel (about 7 foot or 190cms deep) at high tide with some decent fish swimming through there every now and then... we even caught...More

This is by far the best beach of the island; actually the other beaches have very low water and are quite rocky, so not so inviting, while this one is so beautiful and relaxing. A word of advice: consider this factor when choosing your accommodation.

Rode our bikes from Etu Moana (on the west side) all the way around to Ootu Beach. Very pretty white sand and many places where you can walk out quite a ways into the lagoon with the water only to your knees. Also a great...More
