I think I'll leave the description of this trip to this video, shot and directed by John Bilderback back in 2008.
Fakarava is one of the largest circular reefs in the world and gets a few dozen tourists who come for the world-class diving a year- if that. Toau and Apataki are even less-visited much smaller jewels whose only real industry is black pearl farming. Big air, big surf, big winds, big coconuts, big sharks, big fun. Imagine a 30 mile long lagoon of silky water, clear and aquamarine in color, 25 knot winds and you've just about got it. Well of course there's the world class reef diving, and oh yeah- some pretty stellar waves along the way as well and...well, you get my drift.
- Black pearl farms
- Guaranteed wind
- Incredible lagoons
- Sick wave kiting (advanced)
- Wow factor
- Tiger sharks (could be a plus!)
- Very remote- lack of services and provisioning
- Very sharp coral- expert only surfing
