Rangiroa is home to a 42-mile long by 16-mile wide turquoise lagoon. Hosting only a handful or resorts, Rangiroa is the perfect destination for the discriminating traveler looking to get away from it all. Only an hour’s flight from Tahiti, Rangiroa boasts beautiful white sand beaches. The Tuamotu Archipelago is one of the birthplaces of the South Pacific’s rare black pearl, which would be a wonderful souvenir from your Rangiroa vacation.
Like many of the islands of French Polynesia, Rangiroa offers access to fantastic water sports. Snorkeling, sailing, and scuba diving are great ways to see what this island offers. Visit a traditional Tahitian village, dive with sharks, and visit a bird sanctuary. Rangiroa is the answer for a real, authentic visit to French Polynesia.
