Silversea Luxury Cruises A MATAIVA ISLAND

A coral atoll that is part of the Tuamotu Archipelago in the French Polynesian islands, Mataiva is a tiny paradise. It is made up mainly of a beautiful oval-shaped lagoon that is six miles across and three miles wide and is nearly all surrounded by gorgeous coral beaches. Seen from above, Mataiva’s lagoon appears like blue mosaic tiles; this is part of its reticulated structure of just barely submerged coral reefs that have eroded over time to create a honeycomb structure, holding about 70 little shallower pools.

The lagoon has several rich snorkeling spots and also is home to the ancient Marae Papiro, a ceremonial platform associated with a pre-Christian religion that revered sea turtles.
