This is the Tikehau Atoll in French Polynesia. It’s the permanent home to about 300 residents, many of whom work on the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort.
On a visit in 1987 Jacques Cousteau’s research group made a study of Tikehau’s lagoon and they discovered that it contains a greater variety of fish species than any other place in French Polynesia.
Take your mind off work for a second and enjoy Tikehau…
The atoll’s oval-shaped lagoon is 27 km long and is mostly surrounded by a coral reef.
