"Visit Rangiroa. This atoll is..." French Polynesia Favorite Tip by wndsrfgrl

French Polynesia General: 85 reviews and 75 photos

Favorite thing: Visit Rangiroa. This atoll is absolutely beautiful. Stay at the Kia Ora Village & Kia Ora Sauvage. At the Sauvage, those people who can't stand being away hot water or the extra amenities, beware. You won't get them here. This place has no electricity and you'll be living in rough.

Fondest memory: The sharkfeeding, diving, and snorkelling. The atoll is not as commercialized and since there are hardly any lights at night you'll be able to see a sky full of stars all the way to the horizon. Almost every night at 8:30 we were able to see meteors shooting by. It was unbelievable.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
