Rangiroa is one of the largest atolls on the world. Part of the Tuamotus Islands, this is big sky country, unlike its more rugged and mountainous sisters among the French Polynesian islands. No wonder that in the local island tongue, the name ‘Rangiroa’ stands for ‘immense sky’. Rangiroa is home to a vast lagoon and arguably to the planet’s largest natural aquarium along its western shores, the Blue Lagoon. The ideal depth of the magnificent lagoon and the richness of its precious marine life makes it a diver’s destination. The currents created by its underwater passes are perfect conditions for scuba diving and snorkeling. If you’re lucky, you could even come upon schools of wild dolphins that are known to frequent these waters. Don’t miss boat cruises to the Blue Lagoon (or Lagon Bleu) and to the Île aux Récifs across the lagoon. The string of charming little reef islets powdering the South Pacific around Rangiroa is a treat to visit for picnic excursions.
