Lagoons, a world apart

The French Polynesia is home to one of the largest collections of coral lagoons in the world. Uniting the land with the ocean with supernatural shapes and colors, these thousands-of-years-old natural constructions are really a world apart.

 

Bora Bora

The heavy sky changed its colors on this day of the Hawaiki Nui canoe race. The intensity of the race, with hundreds of competitors is played off Bora Bora’s blues.

Moorea

At the entrance of Opunohu Bay, which according to legend was hollowed out by the steps of a giant yellow lizard, sits the lagoon and its coral shelf striated with underwater faults.

Bora Bora

The myriad of blues have helped give Bora Bora its reputation as the most beautiful lagoon in the world.

Maupiti

Is it a map or something viewed under a microscope? Nature is at its most creative with striking coral formations.

Rangiroa

With a length of 80 Km and a width of 30 Km, the lagoon of Rangiroa forms an inland sea. Almost in the center, motu Pae’o seems emerge from the depths, as lifted by a huge bubble.

Huahine

Waves and movements created this visual abstraction that looks like something between a photograph, painting and illustration.

Tetiaroa

A spit of sand accentuates the lagoon. It’s as if nature painted in pastels to intensify the colors.

Definitely one Polynesia’s most beautiful lagoons. The barrier reef is entirely closed and is drawn in thousands of shapes.
