Tikehau pass anchorage on a very calm day
French Polynesia

This is a view from the deck of Tahina, a catamaran sailboat, while at anchor on the Tuamotus Atoll of Tikehau. We were at the anchorage nearest to the Tikehau pass. You can see a few houses in the nearby island. On this day, you could often not tell the difference between the sky and the water at the horizon due to perfect reflections off the water.

More About French Polynesia

Thousands of kilometres from anywhere, French Polynesia is the place to indulge yourself. Tahiti evokes images of tropical fruit dripping from strange trees... of translucent, shimmering aqua lagoons... of sun-drenched, sandy beaches, and psychedelic coral. A visit to Tahiti and her islands is akin to stumbling upon a parallel universe where fantasy is just another form of reality and hedonistic daydreams come to life. French Polynesia has captivated the world's imagination since 19th-century European explorers first set foot upon her steamy shores."
