Slightly over an hour away from Tahiti on flights that run daily, Rangiroa is a gigantic atoll,the largest in Polynesia, so large it could contain the whole island of Tahiti. A genuine natural aquarium,rated by Commandant Cousteau as the most beautiful and richest lagoon in the world, Rangiroa has become a mecca of the world's scuba divers.
The Tiputa pass is a must-see, offering an incredible panorama of marine life and particularly the famous shark “wall”, a group of up to 300 sharks of various species. Diver or not, the atoll is a sweet paradise for anyone,where several excursions will lead to pink sands, hidden “motu”and the blue lagoon, a heavenly and isolated place. Rangiroa, on its narrow strip of land,offers visitors different possibilities according to the wishes and budget of each, from hotels to family hotels or cruises to enjoy the pleasures of life on the water.
