Rurutu is an island in the Austral archipelago of French Polynesia, in the centre of the Pacific hemisphere. The population of two thousand subsists on fishing, some agriculture, as well as the growing tourism industry. Steep sea cliffs of ancient coral are riddled with numerous caves, so not surprisingly Rurutu is unique among islands in French Polynesia in that its historic inhabitants were cave-dwellers. As the island has a fringiing reef, the island is also well-known for whale watching.

Humpback whales come and reproduce here between July and October within easy sighting distance from the beach, so this is the season that sees the bulk of tourists. However, the attraction of the caves with their stalactites and stalagmites, the chance to climb the mountains and absorb the amazing panoramas, the white sand beaches, the lush tropical flora and the largely untouched native culture, do draw tourists year-round. Of general interest: Captain James Cook ‘discovered’ Rurutu in 1769 and Tahiti lies 672 km to the NE.
