Go for a dive in Rangiroa, French Polynesia
Sure, you could fly off to Bora Bora. But if you’re looking to up the ante, you should visit Rangiroa, a tiny adventure-soaked island in French Polynesia instead. Rangiroa, the second-largest atoll in the world, is a diver’s paradise. There, honeymooners can swim in waters teeming with tropical fish, stingrays, dolphins, and black tip reef sharks. And because the island, which is located on the outskirts of the Society Islands, is only inhabited by 3,000 people, you’ll feel like you have the place to yourself. While on the island, book a stay at the Kia Ora Hotel. Take a swim in the private dipping pools and stay in an overwater bungalow. Then, book a day-long excursion with Reef Island tours for an hour-long boat ride to an uninhabited islet for some of the best snorkeling around.
