Islands At The End of the World

Over one thousand miles southeast of Tahiti are the Gambier Islands.

The cradle of Catholicism during the nineteenth century following the arrival of the first missionaries to the region, hundreds of stone buildings from that era survive including churches, convents, schools, and watch towers.

Mangareva, the largest island of the region, is home to most of the population and the center of the region's pearl industry. The island's only small family pensions are located here in the town of Rikitea.

In Rikitea, you will found the St Michael's cathedral dating from 1848 richly decorated in pearls.

The lagoons of Mangareva are known for their pearl oysters. The largest and most famous pearl farms are located here.
