It’s easy not to notice the small, lovely islets that form a ring around Fakarava’s lagoon, the second largest atoll in French Polynesia. After all, it’s the lagoon that draws your attention, its beauty pulling at you like a magnet. There is a purity in the lagoon and the quiet elegance of the marine life that live out their lives in the shallows near shore. Life in the small villages, with their bougainvillea lined roads, bright coral churches, quaint homes, boulangerie, snacks, and restaurants seems to hover above the clear waters surrounding this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Moʻorea is an island in French Polynesia. From above, the shape of the island vaguely resembles a heart, with its two nearly symmetrical bays opening to the north side of the island: Cook's (or Paopao) Bay and ʻŌpūnohu Bay. Charles Darwin found inspiration for his theory regarding the formation of coral atolls when looking down upon Moʻorea while standing on a peak on Tahiti. He described it as a "picture in a frame", referring to the barrier reef encircling the island. The CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research) maintain a research station at the end of ʻŌpūnohu Bay since about 1970.
