Ahe atoll, Tuamotus

The main roadway on the atoll as it winds through a grove of coconut palms

Ahe, Tuamotus

This roadway links the surrounding motus, but is only accessible by 4x4's at low tide. Locals either use this road or come by boat to the village of Tenukupara for supplies

Grocery Store, Ahe

This is the only grocery store in the village. Supplies are limited as the supply ship from Tahiti arrives about once a month

Fresh pineapplies

This local couple got the last of the fresh pineapples from the store
