Into the blue in Tahiti


While there is stunning scenery and spectacular accommodation above the eye popping aqua-marine water of French Polynesian islands like Bora Bora, Moorea, Rangiroa and Huahine, there is just as much to see under the water. Tahiti offers world-class snorkelling in pristine lagoons with myriad sea creatures playing hide and seek in colourful corals. Many resorts offer tours where you can swim with reef sharks, see manta rays, or stand in hip-deep water with velvety stingrays brushing past your legs. If diving is more your thing, head for Rangiroa which boasts one of the world’s best drift dives at Tiputa Pass and the second biggest lagoon in the world.
