Tuamotu/Rangiroa: Snorkeling at Ile Aux Recif

Some of the most pristine and clear water in the world is at Ile aux Recif on Rangiroa. The water pushes through the outer coral reef and then runs through a channel into the inner atoll lagoon. It’s a drift snorkel, the channel rushes over the coral beds at a pretty high speed so you need to be able to navigate and not get all scrapped by corals in the shallow areas.
