The Tuamotus in the South Pacific is full of beautiful atolls with small villages and very kind people. The playful kids run up and down the pier in Makemo atoll and jump right into the crystal clear water. They are also quite interactive with foreigners. The kids ask for tours of the boats and asked us for bananas. The adults are nice and funny too. Each time you walk by them, they wave and say, “Bonjour!” or, “Hello!” pleasantly.
The snorkeling all around here is absolutely beautiful, too. You are almost guaranteed to see at least ten gorgeous fish with wonderful shades of yellow, green, blue and red. We have seen grey reef, black tip, white tip and blue sharks, but don’t be scared. All you have to do to keep safe is stay in a group. Just remember this: You are more likely to get hurt by your own toilet than by a shark.
The Tuamotus is a wonderful place where you can have fun in paradise. I really recommend the Tuamotus so much I would go there when ever possible!
