Fakarava

Meaning “beautiful” or “making things superb,” Fakarava is a nature lover’s paradise tucked in the Tuamotu Archipelago. Among these scattered specks of land offering untouched beaches and endless shades of blue that form the largest chain of atolls in the world, it is the second biggest. Outlined by pretty pink-sand beaches, Fakarava has a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve teeming with rich wildlife in its coral reefs and bright blue skies. Spot rare birds, see colorful schools of fish in the crystal-clear water, and drift-dive the Garuae Pass showcasing some of the world’s most beautiful coral formations. To explore it on a cruise that includes the Tuamotus, book a snorkeling and scuba diving excursions for an up-close and personal encounter from the m/s Paul Gauguin.
