  Apoomau river
by Helga67

This is the only navigable river in French Polynesia. The river trip is a relatively short excursion up the river about a km or four into the 'Heart of Darkness' jungle with thick folliage. The trip lasts until the river becomes too shallow to navigate.

Directions: At the end of Faaroa Bay

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
