Tikehau

If you want to be assured of the best diving in Tahiti, then you must visit Tikehau. The fish population in the lagoon is so dense that Jacques Cousteauís research group proclaimed the lagoon of Tikehau to have the most concentrated populations of varied fish species among all the islands of Tahiti- Polynesia.

You can "shoot the pass" which has been called the "world's greatest adrenaline rush!" Divers, snorkelers, and even those aboard a glass bottomed boat are carried in a rush of water between the ocean and lagoon surrounded by millions of fish.

If this wasn't enough, imagine a tropical paradise without hordes of tourist. This is the island the Polynesians visit for their holidays. With spectacular scenery both above and below the water, Tikehau is a fascinating island destination to explore.
