Rangiroa, the Atoll which has its own horizon

An atoll is a coral island, often with a ring, or as a set of Islands formed by a coral reef that they enclose a lagoon connected to the sea. Rangiroa, is an atoll with a lagoon inside, but so great, that looks like a sea, capable of having its own “horizon”.

Rangiroa has a ring of a few 415 islets and white sand, interrupted by four steps that connect with the sea. The lagoon of the atoll, is about 80 kilometers long and 32 km wide. Around the edge of the atoll, adds about 200 kilometers of extension. It is one of the planet’s largest atoll, and in case outside little, one of the most beautiful in the world:

Just two of the Islands in the atoll are inhabited, being part of French Polynesia. Of course, in addition to live by tourism, the atoll is a paradise of diving: the Blue Lagoon, reaching up to 35 meters deep.
