BEST PRICE GUARANTEEDLEARN MORE
Rangiroa, an atoll of the Tuamotus chain in French Polynesia, is one of the largest atolls in the world, with an area of 1446 square kilometers - large enough to encompass the entire area of the nearby island of Tahiti. The atoll is colloquially known as Rangi, and the first settlers were said to have arrived in the 10th century, though the first recorded European settlers came sometime in 1615-1616. Today the population relies on an economy of fishing and black pearl farming, as well as a unique vineyard atoll environment. Rangiroa is perhaps best known as an amazing scuba diving paradise, with world-renowed dive sites all around Tiputa Pass. The environment is unique in that different types of diverse marine life can be seen depending on the flow of the current through Tiputa Pass. Visit Rangiroa in 2015 and make a literal splash in your travel calendar, as you take the plunge and book our tours and activities.
