The Atoll of Tikehau Honored by OUTSIDE Travel Awards 2014
March 4 2014

OUTSIDE, America’s leading active lifestyle brand, has selected the atoll of Tikehau as the runner- up in the “Best Beaches” category of their annual Travel Awards, which celebrate the top destinations, companies, products, and travel providers—in the U.S. and around the world—that inspire people to participate in an active lifestyle.  The entire list of honorees appear in OUTSIDE’s April issue (on newsstands March 18), and online at www.outsideonline.com/travelawards.

This year, OUTSIDE tapped its global network of correspondents, who traveled across America, to Belize, Switzerland, Italy, and beyond, identifying the best new adventures, stunning lakes, gorgeous new lodges and hotels, family vacations, secret getaways, high-tech airports, and foodie hotspots. The result is more than 50 spectacular trips, plus the best travel apps, tour guides, gear, tips for traveling green, and advice for traveling solo.

“Whether you’re looking to go big for an expedition, splurge on a luxurious paradise, or plan an epic family trip, OUTSIDE has unearthed fifty travel gems that will inspire you to renew that passport,” said OUTSIDE Editor Chris Keyes. 

“Sometimes called the Pink Sand Island because of the color of its shores, Tikehau isn’t a beach so much as a ring of them—a Tahitian atoll in the Tuamotu Islands with a 180-square-mile lagoon twinkling in the middle. The choicest views are from the 24-suite, 13-bungalow Pearl Beach Resort on the southern end of the atoll (from $626 per night; spmhotels.com/resort/tikehau). Fly directly from Tahiti’s Faa’a airport, then rent an overwater bungalow with a glass floor panel and watch angelfish swim past,” noted Outside writer Tim Neville.
 
The complete list of Travel Awards winners will be featured in the April issue of OUTSIDE, available March 18, and online at www.outsideonline.com/travelawards.
