The Endless Lagoon

By Linda Tancs

It’s no wonder why French Polynesia’s Rangiroa, the second largest atoll in the world, is called an endless lagoon. More than 200 motu dot its coral fringes for a length of 110 miles, encircling a richly hued lagoon coveted by divers. Its size is so vast they say you can fit the entire island of Tahiti inside it. That means the possibilities for marine life are endless. Depending on the season, you may encounter rays, sharks, turtles, dolphins, napoleon fish and barracuda. On land, don’t miss the chance to visit one of French Polynesia’s largest working pearl farms or visit the peaceful villages of Avatoru and Tiputa.
