Beneath the surface of its jade-green lagoon, Rangiroa hosts a dazzling frenzy of marine life that has earned this island the nickname “God’s Aquarium” by expert divers. And while the snorkeling and diving here are world class, you don’t have to go underwater to revel in this largest atoll of the Tuatmotu archipelago. During your extended stay here, on the “Island of the Long Sky,” you can also visit black pearl farms, fish-breeding farms, and villages that reveal the true daily life of the Paumotu people.
