"Fakarava Atoll" Îles Tuamotu et Gambier by jorgejuansanchez
Îles Tuamotu et Gambier Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 32 photos
I landed in Rotoava, in Fakarava Island, one of the Tuamotu atolls, by ship.
The locals are waiting the tourists in the pier to give them flowers. Fakarava is an atoll very flat; people are aware that within 20 years the atoll will be swallowed up by the waters, but nobody wants to migrate to Tahiti. They prefer the quiet life of their tiny islet.
They sell beautiful black pearls very cheap. I buy some for my daughters.
The beaches belong to the islanders and you need to ask permission to swim. They are all nice and always grant it.
