Tuamotu, an archipelago that aspires to become a paradise

Never say you have seen it all. Not even the most experienced traveler can say that he has been lucky enough to be in every corner of the planet. You may have heard that many people have traveled around the world, but from there to discover places as remote as the archipelago of Tuamotu there is a lot of difference.

Is in the French Polynesia, many thousands of kilometers from Europe, and has everything to be considered an earthly paradise. The photographs speak for themselves, and those who have been there can attest that the word stress has never been heard in those parts.

The paradise of tranquility

In total there are 77 atolls and their population does not reach even the 600 inhabitants, so they do not understand traffic jams or queues to go shopping at the fish shop. Its coral islands, in an elongated shape that seems to have been designed with some editing program, are a sight to behold that one can only accurately describe if one sets foot there.

If you want to visit Tuamotu you will have to get an Air France ticket that will take you from Madrid to Los Angeles, where it stops to fill the kerosene tank before resuming the route. Your next destination is Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia, where you will have to book a flight with Air Tahiti Nui that will take you to one of the most popular islands in the archipelago in question.

You shouldn't take your mobile to Tuamotu. You will be in another world and it is only worth resorting to technologies to get in touch with family and friends from time to time. You have to enjoy the tranquility, merge with nature and be open enough to strike up a conversation with the natives. They will show you that not everything is working piece by piece in an office and spending the day hooked on social networks. Life can be very different.


Much to see and much to learn

You will learn the traditional dances of Tahiti and you can create flower wreaths like the ones you have seen so many times in the movies. And of course, between learning and learning you can take a dip in any of its beaches, which as you can imagine are the best there is on the planet (in fact, in French Polynesia there is the most beautiful beach in the world).

"The Tahitian pearl necklace", which is the nickname that Tuamotu has come to receive, boasts islands and atolls like Rangiroa (the second largest atoll in the world), Manihi, Tikehau and Fakarava, where you can dive, go horseback riding or go deep sea fishing. In addition, you will not have to worry about accommodation, as there are luxury establishments such as the Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort, the White Sand Beach Resort Fakarava or the Hotel Kia Ora.
