Care for an island getaway? Are you ready to discover a secluded island that has white and pink-sand beaches and bright, blue, crystal waters? Pack your bags and head to the South Pacific. There you can find a place known as Tikehau- an enchanting paradise that is considered one of the most beautiful islands in French Polynesia.
Tikehau, which means “Peaceful Landing” is a 27-km long, ring-shaped reef (atoll) located at the Tuamotu Archipelago. From above, Tikehau appears like a gigantic swimming pool because it surrounds a turquoise, oval-shaped lagoon, which is abundant with marine life.
In 1987, a research group led by Jacques Cousteau discovered that this lagoon has a greater number of fish species compared to any other island in Tuamotu. Tikehau’s lagoon is perfect for fishing, snorkling, diving, and boating.
With a population of merely 300, Tikehau is definitely a peaceful and quiet refuge for those who want to escape the busy streets of the metropolis.
