Pension Paparara is beautifully placed right up against the lagoon on the north end of Fakarava. The ocean was just a few steps from your front porch, and the setting is postcard perfect. There is nothing going on in Fakarava aside from the diving, but the diving is some of the best in the world. Fakarava is a UNESCO world... More
