Manihi Pass
French Polynesia

This photo was taken from the village of Manihi (a Tuamotus atoll in French Polynesia) at the main pass into the lagoon.  You can see a cargo or fishing vessel at the main dock, some houses of the village, they crystal clear waters of the pass, the sea, and the lagoon.  Inside the lagoon is the most productive collection of pearl farms in the south Pacific.

Another 360 panorama from the Tahina Expedition.

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."
