Rangiroa Overview

Ra´iroa gets its name "huge sky" from its great length. It is the largest atoll in the Tuamotu islands and the fourth largest in the world, with more than 240 motu separated by more than 100 "hoa", small channels that makes up its ring of corals. The incomparable brilliance and color of the lagoon from jade-green to purple, completely overwhelms you.

Avatoru is the main village, and this is where you will find the government buildings, including the Mayor´s office, the Post Office, the Pearl Industry Research Center and two churches.

The other village, Tiputa, has houses ringed with bleached corals and fenced with with flowering hedges. A road surfaced with crushed corals links the two villages.
