Rangiroa has been described as a ship anchored in the ocean. Unlike other mountainous Polynesian islands, it is an atoll, the eroded rim of an ancient volcano. With a circumference of 230 km, it is the largest atoll in the South Pacific with a lagoon that could contain the island of Tahiti and its peninsula! Some 240 motus (islets) separated by more than 100 very shallow hoa (channels) form its coral ring. Imagine a crystal lagoon 42 miles long in the aquamarine South Pacific. Imagine pristine white beaches as long as the island itself. Imagine a sea of islands that invites your exploration. This is Rangiroa. In the native tongue it means “Boundless Sky“.

Like Crusoe on Kia Ora Sauvage
A one-hour cruise from the Hotel Kia Ora down to the south coast of Rangiroa, takes you to the Avearahi motu (islet) and Kia Ora Sauvage. As soon as you land, the story of Robinson Crusoe comes alive in a setting of 5 traditional bungalows nestled amid the coconut and palm trees. These bungalows have been built in the purest Polynesian tradition while offering high-standard amenities. Local materials such as ironwood, woven palms, bamboo, coconut, and local handicraft objects have been tastefully integrated in the design. You will marvel at the bathroom with its shellfish curtain, coral tiles, stone washbasin, all surrounded by tropical plants.

Best time to travel
The month-long Heiva i Tahiti festivities in July are to Tahiti what Carnival is to Brazil, and people come in droves to be part of them. The festival occurs in the drier and cooler period, June through October, which is, perhaps, the best time to visit. Visitors during this period should, however, take into account the maraamu trade winds which can bring unstable weather from the south between June and August. The weather gets warmer and more humid between November and the end of May.

Getting there
An international flight to Tahiti and then a one-hour flight to Rangiroa.
